"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…
