lyrics

We always think we have so much time
Spend forever on the nickel and dime
Who knows when you reach the end of the line

If I listen close I can hear you whisper
Remember baby face kissing Daddy's whisker
We'd circle up and sing "Mama-mia come on home" any time we missed her
A kangaroo ride in sawdust covered Carhartts
After coming home in the pitch dark
A promise kept from a worn out worker to a kid with a full heart

I'll meet you in my dreams, keep you alive in my memory
I'm catching up but you're so far ahead of me
I'll make you proud, make you proud of me

I remember getting calls when I was way overdue
"Want to make sure that you're breathing, haven't heard from you"
It drove me crazy - I could see straight through and I wouldn't say I'm sorry
Now I wish for that long belated call
To hear that you're still breathing - haven't heard from you at all
Did the big one pull you in or did time just get away from a kid with a full heart

I'll meet you in my dreams, keep you alive in my memory
I'm catching up but you're so far ahead of me
I'll make you proud, make you proud of me
