When I Can’t · Lyrics

Son EP

Who will set you free?
Who will take you far?
Who will play my guitar, when I can’t?


Who will let you in?
Who will lay you down?
Who won’t make a sound, as the night falls down
When I’m gone?


Who will raise our child, now?
Who will say he is mine, now?
Who will get to watch him grow as only a father gets to know, when I’m not around?


When I can’t lift my arms to hold you
Or open my eyes and behold you
When the cold comes over
Who will keep you warm?


Who will bring you peace?
Who will leave you be?
Who will fall down at your knees, pleading for mercy, if it isn’t me?


Who will set you free?
Who will take you far?
Who will play my guitar, when I can’t?
