When my old man said to me
You're growing fast, boy, there's so much to see
You take a wife, new born, a family

He said you'd see when it comes time
To be a man
To do what's right
You'll always find a way to make your way through life

When my old man said to me
Treat mankind with dignity
Start with no one, finding someone that you need

Wonder where we go
Is there really an Afterlife?
Never growing old
Going home will free his spirit

When my old man said to me
The world moves fast, boy, with no guarantees
Trust in no one
Til you find someone you believe

Then my father passed away
From this world to a grave
Mother Earth, sands of time
A better place
The Afterlife

Wonder where we go
Is there really an Afterlife?
Never growing old
Going home will free his spirit

Never ending love
Is there hope in the Afterlife?
Reach into my soul
I'll see my dad in the Afterlife

When my old man was alive, he always would teach
When my old man was alive, he always believed in me

(1st solo - Alex)

He helped shape his son
The man I've become

(2nd solo - Eric)

Then my old man said to me
Embrace the past
Listen son
Carry on our legacy

Then my father passed away
From this world to a grave
Mother Earth, sands of time
A better place
The Afterlife

Wonder where we go
Is there really an Afterlife?
Never growing old
Going home will free his spirit

Never ending love
Is there hope in the Afterlife?
Reach into my soul
We'll meet again in the Afterlife...

    Love and respect for my forefathers, family heritage and their teachings - and to be blessed to see them again 1 day, in a better place, gives hope-this is what these strong lyrics mean to me ;)
