about

this song is about my dad.

lyrics

midwestern boy
he's got that midwestern charm
but his dad doesn’t like his guitar
midwestern boy
he's got that midwestern charm
and he dances
he’s got the prettiest feet
he knows that no one wants to die alone
if only his dad could see him now

midwestern boy
who’s growin' into a man
one that Sam will never meet
midwestern boy
he’s got those lady killer eyes
but he’s soft and sweet,
smells like candy

well he woke up and he found out he was bleeding from his lungs
too many cigarettes,
too many women breathing for him
well he woke up and he found out he was bleeding from his heart
and what did michael do?
he played his guitar

so here i am,
a new york city boy
trying hard to be my dad’s man
but i don’t got it in my genes
dark angels never whispered to me
i still got girlhood in heart
so here i sit
next to a father who is alive
but we cant even cry together

no one wants to die alone
if only
i could meet sam now

well if you’re dancing, i'm dancing
if you’re singing, i'm singing
if you’re living, i'm living
but if you die

no one wants to die alone
i won’t let you die alone
if only, we could see each other now
