  1. Grandmas Song

Dedicated to Barbera Lemon, in loving memory

Lyrics

Grandma's Song
Every waking moment of your life filled with pain
Is meant to give you the strength to sustain yourself when it rains
But in reality nothing ever prepares you for the hardships ahead
When you find out a loved one is dead
Your whole world crashes down
You can't think straight
and the room is spinning around
Filled with guilt and remorse for every selfish moment that you ever cursed them
It was only cause they love you

I know you're not here
But I know you're not gone
I miss you so much
But it's ok to move on

All these memories
Of when I was younger
You helped teach me to stand
And to learn every number
As I got older
You'd hold me as I cried
And promise me something better lie
On the other side of all the pain
You told me to trust in what I believe in
That people wear masks made for deceiving
Manners and courage discipline and encouragement
Always maintaining my nourishment
You fed my interests like I was a starving child
Going out of the way every time all the while
Just to give a sad kid a smile
You kept us safe
When even the law wouldn't
You're the reason I'm breathing today

I know you're not here
But I know you're not gone
I miss you so much
But it's ok to move on

You always told me to follow my heart
That it would always lead me to the right place
So that's where I always start
You're the reason that I model
You always said I could do it
So I set out to prove it
You kept me educated
You showed me haw to garden
How to make the plants grow
You taught me everything
With all the love that you'd always show

I know you're not here
But I know you're not gone
I miss you so much
But it's ok to move on

You were the one
That kept the family together
Always finding the light
In the stormy weather
It was always at your house
We'd all get together
You showed me what it meant
To be a good hostess
How to make people smile
When they are feeling hopeless
What it means
To walk a righteous path
And why it's so important
To always remember to laugh
To cherish not what
But who you have
That items don't mean you have a life worth living
But cherished memories
Worth never forgetting
I love you and I miss you
And we'll be together again soon

I know you're not here
But I know you're not gone
I miss you so much
But it's ok to move on
