Neck Deep – Candour lyrics

Yesterday say you missing,
Drawn to the light in the distance.
Holding her hand while she listened
She told him how much she would miss him.
Said his goodbyes to his children to his children,
And let the weight fade away.

I have your hands, but I have my mothers eyes
You're tact and poise and her sens of wrong and right
Heard you awake in the middle of the night,
Letting go of the things you keep inside.

Worked your fingers to the bone
To be sent home with a cardboard box
Filled with everything you known,
All things come to be loved and lost.

I'll keep a moment sealed in time inside a picture frame
A small reminder of the things I thought would never change,
They always say its clear to see how parts of you
Shine through in me.

I think you know, you won't be here forever,
And you're counting down the days,
Till you can rest your tired eyes
And let it slip away.

The lessons learned at your side,
Will stay with me all my life,
The man I hope to become
I know is deep down inside.

I know you don't even have to say,
I know you're proud in your own way.
I know you're proud in your own way.

And you watched me grow up,
As I watched you grow older
The chip off your block held me up on your shoulders.
I wish I told you yesterday..
