Lyrics

Packed up my car when I was twenty-one
Traded home life for a place in the sun
Had my sights upon the haze of LA
We said goodbye it was Father’s Day

The city nights had me high on the street
An angry decade knocked me off of my feet
All ambition had me out on the run
For my dreams waiting out in the sun

I know it’s been such a long time
Mountains and peaks left unclimbed
If I could only hold back the seas
I’d change the course of history

Forget the days when we came to blows
Foolish men in our masculine pose
Mother tried to keep our anger at bay
We cried in shame it was Father’s Day

Gone to places I should have never been
Traded justice just to keep myself clean
Took me back like the prodigal son
And wished me well for my days in the sun

I know it’s been such a long time
Mountains and peaks left unclimbed
If I could only hold back the seas
I’d bring you back here with me

So many years kept apart in my youth
Wrote a letter just to tell you the truth
Wasn’t the man you thought I would be
Found out you loved me unconditionally

It’s eighteen years since you’ve been away
Still remember like it was yesterday
So from my little place in the sun
Want to wish you happy Father’s Day
