On my father's legacy
Is handed down by angels' wings
A bittersweet melody
Is now mine to sing
Every precious memory
And broken hearted tragedy
Will walk into eternity
And not fade away
If you will go and not return
Leave me some words of wisdom
If I cannot follow any more
I promise to teach what I have learned
If you will go and not return
How'd you get so far away
So suddenly evaporate
Fortune smiles with teeth of jade
And the greediest eyes
Now I long for that embrace
The strongest arms and troubled face
Smokey air and autumn grey
That make me feel safe
If you will go and not return
Leave me some words of wisdom
If I cannot follow any more
I promise to teach what I have learned
If you will go and not return
Who was it that said to me
That heros will live forever
And where are they now
Now that I'm standing alone
If you will go and not return
Leave me some words of wisdom
If I cannot follow any more
I promise to teach what I have learned
If you will go and not return
Leave me some words of wisdom
If I cannot follow where you go
I promise to teach what I have learned
If you will go and not return
