A Love Undone

an airplane needs a pilot like a family needs a heart
adrift without direction, you’d be lost before you even start
and I needed you to be there, but you were just a silhouette
a picture of a love undone, I see you’re still unfinished yet

every twisted tree that grows from out of solid stone
is a picture of survival from where a scattered seed was sown
and I needed you to be there in times of shifting sands
but there was nothing you could give to fill my empty hands

and I needed you to be there but you never had the time
you were always so busy and we were all so busy being blind

and I don’t want to cause you any pain, we’ve had enough of that now
but I see a window in the rain, we’ve got to open it somehow
I see it opening

father of an unknown son, stranger to his progeny
the distances between us, how far they must appear to be
and I needed you to be there, but that’s all in the past
and but for this frozen moment, time goes by so fast

an airplane needs a pilot like a family needs a heart
