My Father's Chair - Rick Springfield

My fathers chair still standing there

 

All alone since the long night

 

Now it's three years on and I still feel

 

Hell come home well be alright

So wheres this healing time brings

 

I was told the pain would ease

But it still hurts like the first night

 

That night my brother

 

My mother and I

 

Were looking up

 

At a distant star

 

And wishing we

 

Could reach that far

 

And back in the house

 

And alone for the first time

 

We told each other we cared

 

We avoided my fathers chair

 

I watch my family we hold on

 

We are strong and well be alright

The clock continues counting down all the while

And every child will share the long night

But do the spirits meet again

 

Why am I still so filled with doubt

 

Is my soul everlasting

 

And the far distant future

 

When I knew you'd be gone

 

Came too fast

 

And stays too long

Why do they leave

 

The weak of spirit

 

And take the strong

 

When the world turns sour

 

And I get sick from the smell

 

And I can't find no comfort there

 

I climb into my fathers chair
