Son, just sit here with your pain.
You must be willing to remain
Close to your heart while it’s going insane.
Don’t you medicate the pain.
But this grief is too hard to bear
I miss the fragrance of her hair
Needing your strength just to carry me through
Cause it doesn’t seem like she cares

And I’m moving beyond the heartbreak,
Into anger, and into rage
But I don’t want that,
I just want you back.
Now all I’ve got is this empty stage
If you won’t hear me,
I’ll sing to no one
I’ll sing to anyone who has ears
But it makes no difference,
Cause you don’t want me
But I’m learning how to dry my tears

Son, you don’t know what tomorrow holds,
There could be joy as life unfolds
This could be the best thing that’s happened to you
Come spring it won’t be this cold
Stop talking as if it’s done
I just can’t choose to love anyone
Would you tell a father “look, you have other sons”?
I really thought that she was the one

Son, straighten up your back
Focus on fixing that shit that’s slack
You gave her your love and that’s all she should need
Quit giving yourself a heartattack

Pops, teach me to carry this pain
Like a man, teach me how to sustain
Teach me to love one who doesn’t love back
This loss don’t feel too much like gain

And I’m moving beyond the heartbreak,
Into anger, and into rage
But I don’t want that,
I just want you back.
Now all I’ve got is this empty stage
If you won’t hear me,
I’ll sing to no one
I’ll sing to anyone who has ears
But it makes no difference,
Cause you don’t want me
But I’m learning how to dry my tears

Hey, hey, I love you
Hey, hey, you loved me too
But it’s done,
Oh, but it’s done.

Well I hope that you figure it out,
When you find what your life’s all about.
Thought I had mine all solved,
And that’s when you came.
Well maybe we’ll try it again.
