lyrics

Verse 1
In the purple moonlight.
All the stars they shine so bright.
And all the horses die.
When you saw that woman.
You looked into the night.
You never told a lie.
In the heat of passion.
Warm in her embrace.
You gave a piece of you.
And I stand here singing.
A son you never faced.
And I’m looking into you.

Chorus
And as I look into my father’s eyes.
I see myself in all his failure.
See myself and I’m his savior.
And as I look into my father’s eyes.
I see myself in all his story.
See myself in all his glory.

Verse 2
In the purple moonlight.
All the stars they shine so bright.
And all the horses die.
When you left that woman.
Your son began to cry.
All the tears he held inside.
You forgot the memory.
The memory of the love.
The love you gave away.
Now your son has returned.
A memory paper thin.
And he’s looking for himself.

Chorus
And as I look into my father’s eyes.
I see myself in all his failure.
See myself and I’m his savior.
And as I look into my father’s eyes.
I see myself in all his story.
See myself in all his glory.

Bridge
I know that it gets hard sometimes.
‘Cuz the choices that you’ve made.
Have brought you down today.
I know that it gets hard sometimes.
‘Cuz the things that you’ve said.
Have left you on your head,
But you should know that…
Blood is thicker than water.
You know I’ll never hate you father.
I just want to be closer.
To the man who made me what I am.

Outro
In the purple moonlight.
All the stars they shine so bright.
And all the horses die.

I've spent my whole life trying to do a lot of different things but somehow I come to the same conclusion that music is all I want to do.
