Inside our garage
A used pellet gun
An old fishing rod
We took them both in fact
To prove I was brave
I never looked back, you were proud

I was six years old
I asked you for christmas a new telescope
At night we stood outside
It was always so cold as we looked for the moon in the sky

We spent our time
Every sunday
Montgomery street there was a café
And then to the park
Where I learned to ride
the bicycle trail where you ran by my side

Moving all that's in your way
The work of your hands the world's strongest man
Carry us and save the day
The work of your hands the world's strongest man

Sometimes you worked late
Avoiding the traffic, the jokes, the highway
You did the best you could
Like you always told me you hoped that I would
I grew up far too fast
And I can see why you sometimes would get mad
When I lied to your face
You took me aside said we all make mistakes,
You forgave

We took a trip
To fossil rim
And fed the giraffes from the palms from our hands
You stayed up late, outside in the dark
Hammering nails for my new racing car

And I heard you from my bed
The work of your hands the world's strongest man
All that I have left unsaid
The work of your hands the world's strongest man

Moving all that's in your way
The work of your hands the world's strongest man
Carry us and save the day
The work of your hands the world's strongest man

    General CommentCorrection: "we took a trip to fossil rim."

    i am pretty much sure this is correct because i've been to this place and well, there are giraffes that you feed from the palms of your hands.
