My Father's Watch

And so it was
You said I think this feels right
And I guess it does
Cuz it sure helps me sleep at night
And if in time
It helps your sleeping too
I think you'll find
That I don't much like sleeping 
Unless I'm sleeping with you

And it's sick
How slow the days go by
And the tick
Of my father's watch as it shows me time
Hasn't stopped
And I think I've been robbed
Think I better call the cops
Cuz this aging deal
Give it up as a real bad job

And it's sad
How much I miss you
And I think it's too bad
That you're so far away
When I need you to say 
Be strong
It's a good life if you don't weaken
And it won't be long
Fog will lift and your love
Like a beacon will bring you home

And someday I'll make peace with it
My gray hairs and the way you fit
My mother's house and my sister's kid
My father's watch is on my wrist
My father's watch is on my wrist

And so it wasYou said I think this feels right
And I guess it does
Cuz it sure helps me sleep at night
And if in time
It helps your sleeping too
I think you'll find
That I don't much like sleeping 
Unless I'm sleeping with you
