Lyrics That's My Job

I woke up cryin' late at night
When I was very young
I had dreamed my father
Had passed away and gone
My world revolved around him
I couldn't lie there anymore
So I made my way down the mirrored hall
And tapped upon his door
And I said
"Daddy I'm so afraid
How will I go on with you gone that way?
Don't want to cry anymore
So may I stay with you?"
And he said, "That's my job
That's what I do
Everything I do is because of you
To keep you safe with me
That's my job, you see"
Later we barely got along
This teenage boy and he
Most of the fights it seems were over different dreams we each held for me
He wanted knowledge and learning
I wanted to fly out west
I said "I could make it out there
If I just had the fare
I got half will you loan me the rest?"
And I said
"Daddy, I'm so afraid
There's no guarantee in the plans I've made
And if I should fail
Who will pay my way back home?"
And he said, "That's my job
That's what I do
Everything I do is because of you
To keep you safe with me
That's my job, you see"
Every person carves his spot
And fills the hole with light
And I pray someday I might
Light as bright as he
Woke up early one bright fall day
To spread the tragic news
After all my travel
I settled down within a mile or two
I make my living with words and rhyme
And all this tragedy
Should go into my head and out instead as bits of poetry
But I said
"Daddy! I'm so afraid
How will I go on with you gone this way?
How can I come up with a song to say I love you?"
That's my job
That's what I do
Everything I do is because of you
To keep you safe with me
That's my job, you see
Everything I do is because of you
To keep you safe with me
