lyrics

Driving, hear my father's voice
callin' from the side seat sayin' slow
better cool your engines pal
or you're gonna drive us off the road

from Cascade Lake to Madison Park
i was the match and you were the spark for me
left home at just 19 and
Mamma left after me

and with Mumford on the radio
it takes me back to our longest road
thanks for your hands and the love they've shown
they've always shown
they've always shown
shown me love

from docking bays to boy-to-boy days
sock wars up the spiral staircase, no
when I fell down hard
you got me up and set me on the road

you always tried to teach me to work
but all i remember is being a jerk to you
well i'm sorry for the wrinkles on your head
Sorry for the pain I caused you

and with Mumford on the radio
it takes me back to our longest road
thanks for your hands and the love they've shown
they've always shown
they've always shown

I hear a whisper
calling in the dark
brothers and sisters
this is all we are

i want my childrens' hands to feel
those big hands that help me sit still
and listen to papa's stories i know they will
i know they will

and with weezer on the radio
14 showing you the first songs I wrote
thanks for not laughing or making jokes
I love you so , I love you so
I love you so
