Lyrics
There lies my grandfather
Tired but at peace
And I wonder
How can that be
When everything that he has ever known
Is only moments from slipping away
He says

Hey son, it’s been a long……. journey
I’ve done so much that I wanted to do
Seen things, I never expected to see
It feels like, a familiar, story
………………. That soon I’ll complete

But granddad, I don’t understand
Oh I’m gonna miss you so bad
I’ll never forget the times we had

Do you remember, when you were just a small child?
We went to Disneyland
And you felt, as though there wasn’t, enough time for all your plans
And when it came time to go
You were tired and ready to go home

There is still a lot to see
Just as there will always be
But this is all she wrote for me
I’m tired and ready to go home

Splendid!
Moses ya got soul. Without doubt a fine song, the production supports the material. This is what it is all about, the shared experience!

I really like your voice Noah...
honest and plaintive.

I did enjoy it, but as a grandfather with nine grandchildren (so far)it was tad unnerving. but only because it's so true to life!

Very well done...

Be well friend!

Your emotive vocal suit this style of song, Noah. Your older friend has a wonderful speaking voice, too. Well done.
