My father had dementia
He lied in bed for months
Once in a while hed call me
And ask me to fly down
I told him that Id love to
But I had things to do
And so he died without his son
I heard about it drunk after a show

My mother battled cancer
For over seven years
I nursed her and I held her
When time was running out
The night before she left me
I drank scotch all night
And thanked her for everything shed done
Raising me alone wasnt much fun

Dad I can forgive you,
but Ill never forget,
Months I wouldnt see you and when I did
Youd be out with your friends all night
Alone and only nine
I watched the outer limits
And scared out of my mind
I wonder if you felt the same
The days before you died
I wonder if you even knew
Why I wouldnt come around
I bet if you had been there,
There wouldnt be this song

2006 goodbye parents
For once I am sincere
2006 my orphan year
