Grave Song

Story Behind The Song

This is the story of my father grieving for my mother. I listened to eveything he said for two years about regret and blame, and then wrote this song for him (I added things my mom would have said to him),to sing at the grave site, so he could Move On with his life. Didn't help. So do the best you can, and appreciate those you love, while they are alive. When they're dead IT IS TOO LATE TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

Lyrics


I know that you?d want me, to move on with my life
But all these years is a long time, To have a wife

And I just can?t believe it, When I stand next to your grave
And my head just won?t release me, From all the mistakes that I made

FOR CRYING OUT LOUD
FOR CRYING OUT LOUD

When I wake up in the morning, You?re no longer there
I turn around to look at you, But you?re not sleepin in your favorite chair

And my heart is aching breakin, And my head is in such a haze
I look at your pictures, And I remember better days

FOR CRYING OUT LOUD
FOR CRYING OUT LOUD

Sleepless nights, Long lonely days
I don?t wanna go to bed, You won?t be there when I awake

No other woman interests me, Even though it?s been years
And if the sky could just fall on me, I?d be finished with all these tears

FOR CRYING OUT LOUD
FOR CRYING OUT LOUD


They say you don?t realize , What you got until it?s gone
I?m telling you my beautiful one, That?s become my theme song

And if there?s a silver lining, Behind every cloud
Well my skys are so damn dark, That I just can?t see it now

FOR CRYING OUT LOUD


Oh how, I wish I?d realized, That I?d had it made
If there?s a lesson to be learned, You know I think it?s just a little bit late

FOR CRYING OUT LOUD
FOR CRYING OUT LOUD

You always said , This too will pass
But this sorrow comin out of my heart, Just lasts and lasts and lasts

And I just can?t believe it, When I stand next to your grave
And my head just won?t release me , From all the mistakes that I made

FOR CRYING OUT LOUD
FOR CRYING OUT LOUD
IF YOU CAN HEAR ME DEAR
PLEASE FORGIVE ME SOMEHOW
I?M SO SORRY NOW
THAT I?M CRYING OUT LOUD
