Sarah McLachlan – Song For My Father lyrics

How I wish that I could tell you
It's to you that I would run
You were the place that I could always rest my head
When my world had come undone

‘Cause I've been wrestling with my demons
They're telling me I have no choice
How I wish that I could lean upon you now
Amidst the chaos and the noise

Your light buried the dark
A constant unwavering heart

You were the well to cool my fury
Deep and calm your waters feel
Your quiet words a salve to soothe my wayward soul
It was there I learned to heal

Your light buried the dark
A constant unwavering heart

Oh I hope that you can hear me
Through the ravages of time
You have carried me though more than you could know
I still feel your hand in mine

Your light buried the dark
A constant unwavering heart
