Warrel Dane – This Old Man lyrics

I remember this old man and the wisdom he shared with me
Upon his knee I'd listen
I remember words he spoke and the look behind his quiet eyes
In silent bliss life gives little lessons

He spun tales of worlds unseen
Now he sacrificed his youthful dreams
He lived his life again just for me
He raised children to be strong
They flew into the city lights, such busy lives
He wished they'd visit home

I will remember the words of this old man until my dying day

It took his death to bring them home
To the empty rooms where they had grown
Where he died alone
And they buried him next to his bride
I held her hand as my mother cried
Just a child of five, now I understand

Now I understand the words of this old man

    This always brings me back to when I was young, around the age of six I spent two years with a 64 year old Japanese man who not only taught me martial arts but also treated me as his own son, he was more of a father in those two years then my own father who left me at age eleven, I still have yet to hear from my father but its OK, I'll never forget master-sagura and everything he taught me.
