Thats My Job Lyrics

I woke up crying late at night
When I was very young.
I had dreamed my father
Had passed away and gone.

My world revolved around him
I couldn’t lay there anymore.
So I made my way down the mirrored hall
And tapped upon his door.

……………………………♪♪♪♪♪♪…………………………..

And I said “Daddy, I’m so afraid
How will I go on with you gone that way?
Don’t want to cry anymore
So may I stay with you?”

And he said “That’s my job,
That’s what I do.
Everything I do is because of you,
To keep you safe with me.
That’s my job you see.”

……………………………♪♪♪♪♪♪…………………………..

Later we barely got along
This teenage boy and he.
Most of the fights it seems
Were over different dreams,
We each held for me.

He wanted knowledge and learning.
I wanted to fly out west.
Said, “I could make it out there
If I just had the fare.
I got half, will you loan me the rest?”

……………………………♪♪♪♪♪♪…………………………..

And I said “Daddy, I’m so afraid,
There’s no guarantee in the plans
I’ve made and if I should fail,
Who will pay my way back home?”

And he said “That’s my job
That’s what I do.
Everything I do is because of you
To keep you safe with me.
That’s my job you see.”

……………………………♪♪♪♪♪♪…………………………..

Every person carves his spot
And fills the hole with light.
And I pray someday I might
Light as bright as he.

Woke up early one bright fall day
To spread the tragic news.
After all my travel, I settled down
Within a mile or two.

……………………………♪♪♪♪♪♪…………………………..

I make my living with words and rhyme
And all this tragedy
Should go into my head and out instead
As bits of poetry.

But I say “Daddy, I’m so afraid,
How will I go on with you gone this way?
How can I come up with a song to say
I love you?”That’s my job, That’s what I do
Everything I do is because of you
To keep you safe with me.
That’s my job you see.
Everything I do is because of you
To keep you safe with me.

I woke up crying late at night when I was very young

I had dreamed my father had passed away and gone

My world revolved around him, I couldn’t lie there anymore

So I made my way down the mirrored hall and tapped upon his door

And I said, “Daddy, I’m so afraid, how will I go on with you gone that way?

Don’t wanna cry anymore so may I stay with you?”


And he said, “That’s my job, that’s what I do. Everything I do is

because of you, to keep you safe with me. That’s my job you see.”


Later we barely got along, this teenage boy and he

Most of the fights it seems were over different dreams we each held for me

He wanted knowledge and learning, I wanted to fly out West

Said, “I could make it out there if I just had the fare.

I got half, will you loan me the rest.”

And I said, “Daddy, I’m so afraid. There’s no guarantee in the plans

I’ve made. And if I should fail, who will pay my way back home?”


And he said, “That’s my job, that’s what I do. Everything I do is

because of you, to keep you safe with me. That’s my job you see.”


Every person carves his spot and fills the hole with light

And I pray someday I might light as bright as he


Woke up early one bright fall day, to spread the tragic news

After all my travels I settled down within a mile or two

I make my living with words and rhyme and all this tragedy

Should go into my head and out instead as bits of poetry


But I said, “Daddy, I’m so afraid, how will I go on with you gone this
way?

How can I come up with a song to say I love you…….?”

“That’s my job, that’s what I do. Everything I do is

because of you, to keep you safe with me. That’s my job you see.”


Everything I do is because of you, to keep you safe with me….
