The Journey

There’s no way I can tell you all I know
You would not believe a word I say
There’s no way that I can ever show
my feelings without pushing you away
It’s just the nature of this thing that we’ve begun
This journey of a father and a son
There’s no way I can tell you all I’ve done
You would not believe that it’s all true
How they filled me with fear – gave me a gun
Told me I was fighting for the unborn you
It’s just the nature of
this thing that we’ve begun
This journey of a father and a son
There’s no way I can tell you how it felt
Back home in that New Mexican motel
In your mother’s arms my fears would melt
My body home my mind still in hell
Now you talk of war and destiny
And I feel the blood run cold in my veins
I know in my heart what must be
I gave you life now you’re asking for the reins
It’s just the nature of
this thing that we’ve begun
This journey of a father and a son
You will leave to fight your battles this I know
And I will long for your safe return
There’s no way I can tell you before you go
This is not the way I wanted you to learn
It’s just the nature of
this thing that we’ve begun
This journey of a father and a son
