A song for my children, for they are they only thing in the world I love more than making music.


When I see you I forgive the world its ugliness

When I see you I forgive the lord his thoughtlessness

When I see you I just feel like life’s eternal wheel

Has not been rolling on forever useless

You taught me more than I think I have taught you

You make me wiser than I ever dreamed to

You make my life complete, meaningful and sweet

And whoever brought you down here, I bow to you

If you feel lost and lonely

Turn you head and you will see me

I’ll never be far behind you

Ready to extend a helping hand in case you need me to

When I see you it all fits into the masterplan

I can start to love this world I do not understand

For the light that shines from you is so bright and so true

It makes this junkyard feel like a true homeland

I won’t tell you you’ll never cry

That would be such a shameful lie

But every now and then you’ll feel right

Enough to justify the moon the earth and stars in the sky.
