THE BALLAD OF A MAN
The sun keeps going down, no one’s ever around,
No one talks to me no more, I see my body on the floor,
The days and nights run into tomorrow, a little laughter and some sorrow.
Tears and crying in a world of pain, my mother went away before Spring was awake,
My dad’s been gone since I was a little boy, laughter, and joy in between my sorrow.
Songs that ring inside my head remind me of things from yesterday and friends,
I started out a little boy, grew to a man who wonders where he’s going.
Brothers and sisters all over the place, I see their faces, do they have the same names,
I travel my own road of life, three children I love and an ex-wife I have never even liked,
This is a Ballad of a man who loved and cared, he did in his life all that he can.
