Albums: LP (2003)

I watched you grow older,
I watched you struggle
To find your own feet and stand.
I measured your footsteps,
Your starts and your stutters
As you learned to be your own man.

Well, I know you'll be happy,
And I know that you're scared,
But I know you'll be ready,
When you come back, I'll be here.

I know she beckons, this
World like a lover,
With cities of promise and hope.
But be careful, boy,
They say she's a monster, whose
Lies swallow grown men whole.

Now I know that you're ready,
'Cause I know you'll be strong
And I know you'll be happy,
When you come back I'll be gone.

Well, I know that you're ready,
And I know that you're strong,
And I know that you're happy,
When you come back I'll be gone
