"La Mar" as written by and Matthew Mark Mchugh....
This day is getting older,
In fading light it's beautiful.
This wind is blowing colder,
And too soon I'll feel it's pull.

Still, I took all my chances,
Earned myself an even score.
Try to learn my lessons well.
And I don't have the answers,
For those questions anymore.
Only love can beat both heaven and hell.

So sturdy up, sturdy up your heart,
For the road is long ahead.
I'll be with you even though we're apart,
But your road is yours to tread.
And so it goes, and so it goes,
And so it goes, slows your mind, mind, mind,
So it goes... and so it goes, and so it goes, slows your mind, mind, mind.

I've grown old on this ocean,
Gave her all, my stronger years.
Gave my wife my devotion,
When she died, the ocean my tears.

I've tried to teach you well son,
All of everything I knew.
Of how to live this life be true.
Don't bow your head to no one,
And no matter what you do,
If you start then see it through.

So sturdy up, sturdy up your heart,
For the road is long ahead.
I'll be with you even though we're apart,
But your road is yours to tread.
And so it goes, and so it goes,
And so it goes, slows your mind, mind, mind,
So it goes... and so it goes, and so it goes, slows your mind, mind, mind.

    General CommentI am incapable of comprehending how no one has commented on this mesmerizing tracks.

    It tends to be a bit repetitive, especially towards the end, but it remains one of my favourite tracks.

    General CommentLove these lines...such good advice! "Don't bow your head to no one,
    and no matter what you do,
    if you start then see it through."
    i think hes dying and he wants to pass on everything he knows to his son..and when he says "the road is long ahead.I'll be with you even though we're apart, but your road is yours to tread" his son's life is his to do whatever he wants but he shouldnt forget his dads there by his side even if hes dead

    General CommentI love the lines;
    I've grown old on this ocean,
    gave her all my stronger years.
    Gave my wife my devotion,
    and when she died, the ocean, my tears.
    I can relate to that so much, just sitting in the ocean, letting it wash away all your troubles and your tears.That has to be one of my gave TBG lyrics, and they write some good songs.
