at the end of the day

The second song on “Single #1” is called “at the end of the day”, a song inspired by my oldest son who turns 17 years old today.

at the end of the day

the wind of disappointment puffs up your shirt
you can’t lift your head up tears fall in the dirt
when something’s so close and still slips away
it can leave you so empty at the end of the day

time can’t be stopped it happens so fast
it’s a futile hope for any moment to last
i wish i could turn my thoughts into something to say
so let me just hold you at the end of the day

days – together we will stay
i’ll be there for you always
my love will never wane
at the end of the day

i don’t want to lose you but i know you can’t stay
it’s a big world waiting where you’ll make your way
i can’t imagine not seeing your face
you’re always there inside me and each night i will pray
that you go to sleep with my love in your heart at the end of the day

days – together we will stay
i’ll be there for you always
my love will never wane
at the end of the day
