Remember when they took him in the middle of the night
And nobody told you where he'd gone
Death in with morning light and touched your father's hand
In a hospital uptown, where your mother sat alone

For two weeks no one told you, as if it never happened
You held the hope that he was still alive
The funeral was over, no way to say goodbuy
You've never had a chance to show the tears you hold inside

I want to make it up to you somehow
Maybe there's something I have I could give you now
There's so many things you never had
Maybe it doesn't have to hurt so bad
For once in your life
