My father had so much to tell me things he said I had to know
Don't make my mistakes there are rules you can't break
But I had to find out on my own
Now when I look at my own sons I see what my father went through
There's only so much you can do
You're proud when they walk scared when they run
That's how it always has been between fathers and sons
It's a bridge you can't cross it's a cross you can't bear
It's the words you can't say the things you can't change
No matter how much you care
So you do all you can then you gotta let go
You're just part of the flow of the river that runs between fathers and sons
[ guitar ]
Now your mother she'll try to protect you she'll hold you as long as she can
But the higher you climb the more you can see
And that's something I understand
One day you'll look at your own son there'll be so much that you want to say
But he'll have to find his own way
Down the road he must take the course he must run
That's how it always has been between fathers and sons
It's a bridge you can't cross...
We're just part of the flow of the river that runs between fathers and sons
