ONLY FOR A WHILE

I can see the sadness, I can feel the tears
You stand there but you’re gone
I can hear the panic, I can sense the pain
You’re lost you feel alone

Some days you laugh and smile
Some days you’re like a child
Some days you know our names
But only for a while

I can touch your shoulder, sometimes you hold me close
Do you think this will last long?
Do you know who stands beside you? Can you feel the love we share?
Or are we strangers in your home?

Some days you laugh and smile
Some days you’re like a child
Some days you know our names
But only for a while

We stand here in your shadow, you look to us with lost eyes
I wish I could stop the rain.
Some days I see the man I knew, The man who taught me all I know
I just wish that he could stay.

Some days you laugh and smile
Some days you’re like a child
Some days you know our names
But only for a while

Only you know

ONLY FOR A WHILE
