lyrics

Hello Father,

It's been awhile since I've been home. Things out here are moving fast, and I feel alone. But you'd be proud of me, I'm putting all the things you taught me into place.

I hear your voice inside my head, and in the mirror I see your face. I hear you talking in my head. You're like a ghost, but you ain't dead. And as my beard grows I catch your face in window panes. Oh Dad, everything about becoming a man makes us seem the more the same.

You know, I'm dying to come home, even though I'm alright on my own.

Hello, Father. It's been awhile since I've been home. And everyone wants to know when I'm coming home. Hello, Father. I don't know if I'm coming home. And as my beard grows I catch your face in window panes. Oh Dad, everything about becoming a man makes us seem the more the same.

You know, I'm dying to come home, even though I'm alright on my own.

Hello, Father. Don't hold your breath for me.
