I lost my father when I was young, and some amazing people stepped up in his absence. I recently had my first child, a boy, and this song is inspired by what it means to me to be able to be his father, and pay respect to what my father surely wishes he could have been to me. My dad was a songwriter and musician himself and it means the world to carry on in his honor.

Lyrics

FATHER SON BROTHER

OF ALL OF THE NAMES WRITTEN IN THE SAND, YOURS TURNED TO STONE
ALL OF THOSE DREAMS I SENT AWAY, ONE MADE IT HOME
ALL OF THE STARS, THEY WEPT, FOR YOUR BROKEN OATH
BUT NOW ONLY ONE IS LEFT, IT'S YOU, IT'S ALL I KNOW

FROM THE MOMENT YOU WALKED AWAY, I KNEW I'D NEVER MAKE IT HOME
NOW I KNOW THAT I'M GOIN PLACES, ALL BECAUSE YOU LET ME GO
FATHER, SON, BROTHER

OF ALL OF THE THINGS THAT MAKE A MAN, I CHOOSE A HOME
ALTHOUGH I MADE MY GETAWAY, I'M NOT ALONE
ALL OF THE GODS, THEY WEPT, FOR MY HEART OF STONE
I'M HOLDING TO ALL THAT'S LEFT OF YOU, IT'S ALL I KNOW

FATHER SON BROTHER
FROM THE MOMENT I WALKED AWAY, I THOUGHT I'D NEVER MAKE IT HOME
NOW I KNOW THAT WE'RE, GOIN PLACES, AND I'LL NEVER LET YOU GO
FATHER SON BROTHER

YOU'RE WHAT I NEEDED MOST, YOU'RE WHAT I NEEDED MOST

FATHER SON BROTHER.
