sanjukta sharma A very tender song that reminds us of a tender yet powerful relationship in our lives. Beautifully written lines sung with an equally beautiful emotional quality. Lori Lieberman's lyrics stirs something inside that makes me play her songs over and over again.

The lines I loved,

I looked out the window

Before us, the mountains 

Below us, the rooftops
You flew me past sorrow

And all I could think of was
I had my Dad 

And he had his daughter 

And we had forever

Father’s Day L. Lieberman, Jet D’eau Music, BMI You showed me the wind Gave me the air Clouds from above 
 Rain in my hair 
Sound of the snowfall 
Dark winter mornings 
This, I’ll remember This, I’ll remember So long ago, I can see it now 
So many roads, I can choose one now 
So many years, trying to make you proud 
I can’t change that now 
But I can thank-you now I looked out the window 
Before us, the mountains 
 Below us, the rooftops You flew me past sorrow 
And all I could think of was I had my Dad 
 And he had his daughter 
 And we had forever So long ago, I can see it now 
So many fears, I can face them now 
So many years, made it through somehow 
 I’m not breaking now 
I can thank-you now Is it time passing by 
 Is it melancholy 
I just wanted you, I wanted you to know Before time passes by 
Before words are lost with pride 
I wanted to, I wanted to I thought I would tell you 
If you can hear me 
If you find yourself wondering 
Was it all for nothing 
Well I see it clearly 
You were the color 
That awakened me So long ago, I can see it now 
So many tears, I can dry them now So many times wish I’d said out loud 
For the wind, the rain, the clouds Thank-you now Thank-you now…

"FATHER" Written and performed by Lori Lieberman


You showed me the wind
Gave me the air
Clouds from above 

Rain in my hair

Sound of the snowfall

Dark winter mornings

This, I’ll remember
This, I’ll remember

So long ago, I can see it now

So many roads, I can choose one now

So many years, trying to make you proud

I can’t change that now

But I can thank-you now

I looked out the window

Before us, the mountains 

Below us, the rooftops
You flew me past sorrow

And all I could think of was
I had my Dad 

And he had his daughter 

And we had forever

So long ago, I can see it now

So many fears, I can face them now

So many years, made it through somehow 

I’m not breaking now

I can thank-you now

Is it time passing by 

Is it melancholy

I just wanted you, I wanted you to know
Before time passes by

Before words are lost with pride

I wanted to, I wanted to
I thought I would tell you 
If you can hear me

If you find yourself wondering

Was it all for nothing

Well I see it clearly

You were the color

That awakened me

So long ago, I can see it now

So many tears, I can dry them now
So many times wish I’d said out loud

For the wind, the rain, the clouds
Thank-you now
Thank-you now…
