    "Memories" Lyrics

    Dan Hill

    Memories of when I was a little boy, four years old,
    Waiting for my daddy to come home,
    And now I look into the eyes of my own son,
    Wondering what he's thinking of,
    Waiting at the window when I come home.
    Watch his eyes fill up with joy and wonder.
    He reaches out his tiny hand;
    I feel the bond 'tween boy and man.
    Memories of my mom cryin', my daddy gone for weeks at a time,
    Not knowing how to comfort her,
    Facin' my pillow, pretendin' not to hear.
    Now I write this letter to my little boy.

    I'm far away, not knowing really what to say
    Except, "I'm sorry, oh so sorry."
    I don't want to make these same
    Mistakes my daddy made with me.
    Still his voice rolls off my tongue
    When I say, "Boy, protect your mom."
    Memories of my wife cryin' on the phone
    Wonderin' when I'm coming home.
    My voice sounds detached and cold,
    Reminds me of someone that I knew;
    He had a funny attitude

    When I needed him to be
    All the things only a daddy could be to me.
    And I don't want to make the same
    Mistakes my daddy made with me.
    Still his voice rolls off my tongue
    When I say, "Not now, I'm busy son."

    Memories of lying in bed with my wife and son,
    Overwhelmed by so much love,
    Tryin' to explain how a man can cry
    Yet still be happy,
    Thinking of all the dumb mistakes I've made.
    Now I understand my father's pain;
    He did the best with what he knew.
    I love you daddy.
    I watched my son fall asleep
    And wonder what he'll think of me
    When years from now he sees his son
    Reachin' out his tiny hands for love.
