lyrics

Standin' on the mesa, staring at the night
The stars are cold and bright, like burnished steel
A thousand contradictions are running through my mind
As I try to understand what I feel

Distance and space are what defined us
Now everything's too close for me to see
I watch the far-off lightning of rain clouds closing in
And the storms we had flood my memory

Chorus
You never combed your hair like that
And where's that fiery, fierce look in your eye?
I'm lookin' at a stranger, they tell me he's my Dad
And I'm tryin' to find a way to say goodbye

Now you're gone and I stand here bewildered
It never crossed my mind that you could die
Years have dulled the anger of old wounds left unhealed
I hurry home but we've run out of time

Chorus

I'm lookin' at a stranger, they tell me he's my Dad
And I'm tryin' to find a way to say goodbye
