My Orphan Year


My father had dementia
He lied in bed for months
Once in a while he'd call (called?) me
And asked me to fly down

I told him that i'd love to
But i had things to do and
So he died without his son
I heard about it drunk after a show

My mother battled cancer
For over 7 years
I nursed her and i held her
When time was running out

The night before she left me
I drank scotch all night and thanked
Her for everything she'd done
Raising me alone wasn't much fun

So, dad, i can forgive you
But i'll never forget
Months i wouldn't see you
And when i did you'd be
Out with your friends all night
Alone and only 9
I watched The Outer Limits
Was scared out of my mind

I wonder if you felt the same
The days before you died
I wonder if you even knew
Why i wouldn't come around
I bet if you had been there
There wouldn't be this song

Good bye, parents
For once sincere
2006 - My orphan year
