I Turn To You

 

I nodded my head, tried to deafen my steps

I slapped me on the back, but i could not cover my own tracks

Oh to be as a child I turned to a way

Now, he looks at me and I turn to you

 

My tongue cannot cry words I feel in my eyes

One promise made at night,  to live 'til I die

Oh to be as a child I turned to a way

Now, he looks at me and I turn to you

 

            A time of need is at hand

            A day will come to leave all I can

            My Mother and my Father are not here in this world

            But you are alive and well my son

 

Another hard mornin' in her body old and weak

She wrestles her muscles, but in her heart she still believes

You will rest and be fed, she suffers love removed

She looks at me and I turn to you

 

            A time of need is at hand

            A day will come to leave all I can

            My Mother and my Father are not here in this world

            But you are alive and well my son

 

(Repeat Chorus)

 

You are alive so well my son...
