Song Description

as a boy i was raised by both sets of Grandparents...at the time it didn't occur to me just how important they were in shaping who i am today...this is a reflection of my time from then, up until the day i'm too old to live anymore...

Story Behind the Song

life, religion, existence...

Lyrics

when i was a boy and i looked to the sky, my Momma told me that was where i'd go when i die
well, i don't know what she was sold, but it don't feel right to me, if there's a god lookin o'er me why don't he come and save me?
then at our school there was a bully and he pushed me to the ground, standin up there over me and proud he got me down
that don't mean nothin when you really break it down...it don't mean he was better just cause he pushed me around
gotta learn to fight you gotta learn to love, you're gonna die tonight and meet the lord above
tellin god you're sorry for the things you've done, lying that you never meant to hurt anyone
soon i was a man justa workin everyday, just stick to the plan and everything'll be o.k...
then it was my Grandpa that the lord lay low...left a hole in my family, we could never make it whole
i see his face everyday in the trees and in the sky, wondering how to love a god that let that man die...
spendin all my time, just trying to find my way home...guess it's true we come in and out of life all alone
gotta learn to fight you gotta learn to love, you're gonna die tonight and meet the lord above
tellin god you're sorry for the things you've done, lying that you never meant to hurt anyone
now i'm gettin old and i look to the sky, someone else's Grandpa, the apple of my eye
i know someday, he'll be standin at my grave...but he'll always know me and the way i make my way
i'll look down upon him from the very sky, my Momma said i'd go to on the day i die
guiding him along the way if he hears what i say...son don't worry, life and pictures fade away...
gotta learn to fight you gotta learn to love, you're gonna die tonight and meet the lord above
tellin god you're sorry for the things you've done, lying that you never meant to hurt anyone
