songs for parents of missing children lyrics:

1-   my child, forever

1v- morning brings sunshine, and teardrops, and lonely...
      darkness brings silence, and memories, my only...

2v- gone is your smile, your laughter, your trusting...
      here is my searching, my heartache, my rusting...

3v- lost in the gale winds, your pureness, my teachings...
      found within her sins, your anger, your reaching...

4v- you are my child, for always, forever...
      i am your father, for always, forever...

2-   lullabye in absentia

1v- your eyes told me itís bedtime now, your soul did not agree...
      iíd take out my guitar for you, play and sing tenderly...
      my imprint, [ irreversible,] is deep in your soul;
      but trauma scars the virgin child, and time takes its toll...

c-   please remember me...
      please remember me...

2v- son, this is a lullabye in absentia...
      they label you a missing child, but i still call your name...
      my friends support my search for you, but what can they do...
      the flame is in the memories, and our love is true...

c-

    son, this is a lullabye in absentia...


3-  (remember) i stood so tall

1v- boy when i think of you, i still feel a teardrop fall...
      so please when you think of me, remember i stood so tall...
      my son, so small, remember i stood so tall...

c-   when will i see you again...
      little boy iím still your best friend...
      this world is a hard place to love...
      what i start, i see right to the end...

2v- i realized that i was blessed, the first time i heard your call.
      the next time you face a test, remember i stood so tall;
      my son, so small, remember i stood so tall...

c-

4-  down to my knees

1v- at your birth i was the one who cut the cord...
      less of an honor i could not afford...
      little boy youíre the core of my soul,
      without your presence i cannot be whole...
      fear floats in and does not ask please...
      your loss brought me down, down to my knees...

c-   down to my knees, please, bring back my son, he loves in fear,
      baby please, his soul will tear; and soon will freeze...

2v- days turn into nites, and the nites make me crawl...
      deep down in my dreams, iím heariní you call,
      ďwhere are you dada, i cannot stand tallĒ...
      my back pressed too close to the wall, i hold your photos,
      and then i fall,

c-

3v- understand there are flaws in his shield,
      transparency in the veil of his soul...
      a little boy in like dew on the field,
      without his dada he cannot be whole;
      without his dada he cannot be whole...

5-  human fire

1v- well the rainís cominí down, and my soul wants to cry...
      will i sleep at my station, will you understand why ?

2v- doesnít time keep on coming, does your memory allow ?
      will you lend me your mercy; isnít time here and now ?

c-   thru the savagery of human fire...
      past the tragedy that scars your soul...
      i can guide you to a place much higher,
      where my love will serve to make you whole...

3v- will it be in the springtime, or a warm summers eve ?
      when will your soul forgive me; when will loneliness leave ?

4v- repeat 1v-

c-   repeat c-

6-  taken hostage

1v- another day turns into nite, i hear your spirit calliní far away...
      i say my prayer and close my eyes, then i feel your soul materialize...

c-   glory be, you were in my arms...
      glory be, you made me a man...
      glory be, your love was my guide...
      she took you hostage, she chose to run and hide...

2v- seasons pass, but i still try...
      the reasons last, theyíll never change...
      the moon is full and i want to cry;
      but i fight the pull, and for me thatís strange...

c-

3v- my little boy iíll save your soul...
      iíll search the mountains, iíll search the holes...
      my love for you transcends all time...
      my love is yours, and yours is mine...

c-

7-  all this time

1v- walkiní down the street some day, if you come across my face,
      and take a look into my eyes, will there be a state of grace ?

2v- will our memory rescue us, was the bonding deep enough ?
      will the absence melt away, or will pain light up the day ?

c-   where were you, all this time ?
      was your soul one with mine ?
      where were you, all this time ?

3v- 42 full moons have passed, since i held your little hand...
      i didnít think youíd be this tall, i always knew youíd proudly stand...

4v- i always have you in my arms, everytime i dream of you,
      but then the good part fades away, and i wake up in tears and blue...

c-


8-  lost eyes

1v- if you ever had a doubt about my love, you are wrong...
      take a look into my eyes or hear this heartfelt love song...

2v- every child has a right to be loved for a lifetime...
      little boy iíll never rest until youíre held in my arms...

3v- every nite i close the lights and look into your lost eyes...
      when i think about the times we had i canít help but cry...

instrumental break-

repeat 2v-

9-   love sanctions the will

1v- little boy, know youíre never alone...
      conjure me in your mind and youíre home...

c-   please never forget, iíll always forgive...
      love sanctions the will, and love lets us live...

2v- thru the darkness that flows thru these years,
      little boy thoughts of you bring me tears...

c-

3v- loving son i still live for the day,
      when iíll hear your sweet tender voice say,

c-

repeat c-


10-   dreams of dread

1v- in my grasp, you disappear...
      it happens last, itís filled with fear...
      speeding cars, endless chase...
      nites filled with stars, without embrace...

c-   these dreams of dread, wonít go away, wonít leave my head...
      these dreams of dread, they force their way into my bed...

2v- crying eyes, empty hands...
      little boy, broken plans...
      when i sleep, i sleep in fear;
      and when i wake, you are not there...

c-

3v- until your birth, i was alone, alone on earth...
      came home one day and you were gone...
      now i transcend, itís day by day, my search goes on...

c-

11-   this search too long

c-   this love is strong, this house is cold,
      this search too long, and i feel too old...

1v- another lonely nite, the moon comes into play...
      it paralyzed my soul, and i had to shy away...
      a missing childís pain, reminding me to pause;
      iíll try again tomorrow, because,

c-

2v- the world will turn as fast, the sun will rise and fall...
      my search for you will last beyond the final call...
      youíre always in my soul, youíre always near my mind;
      iíll try my best to find you, because,


12- please break my fall

1v- please, son come home...
      time wonít let go...
      too deep this hole; these things i know...

c-   where are you...
      thunder sounds your call...
      stare down the moon...
      please, break my fall; please, break my fall...

2v- i sing this dirge...
      tears stain my face...
      your love is my urge...
      pain takes your place...

intrumental break-

repeat 1v
