Fathers And Sons
(John Jarvis/Gary Nicholson)

My Father had so much to tell me,
Things he said I had to know.
Don't make my mistakes
There's rules you can't break.
But I had to find out on my own.

Now when I look at my own sons.
I see what my father went through
There's only so much you can do.
You're proud when they walk.
Scared when they run.
That's how it always has been,
Between fathers and sons.

CHORUS
It's a bridge you can't cross
It's a cross you can't bare
It's the words you can't say.
The things you can't change
No matter how much you care.
So you do all you can
Then you gotta let go
You're just a part of the flow
Of the river that runs between fathers and sons

Now, your mother she'll try to protect you.
She'll hold you as long as she can.
But the higher you climb, the more you can see,
And that's something that I understand.
One day you'll look at your own sons.
There's will be so much you want to say.
But he'll have to find his own way,
Down the road he must take, the course he must run.
That's how it always has been,
Between fathers and sons.

CHORUS

You're just a part of the flow
Of the river that runs between fathers and sons
