about

Title track written for my father who had fought in the Korean Conflict and who's values and beliefs have carried me on my journey through life. He was an artist and he encouraged me to follow my passion. The second verse of the song is for my mother who's guidance helps me to believe in my dream and who's love is the force that keeps the dream alive.

lyrics

I was born the son of a hero, or in my eyes that's the way it should be, Though you fought in the war, and I didn't know what for,
I believe you were fighting for me,
You said freedom is worthy of dying, integrity is the truth of a man,
With all that you do, I still look up to you,
And try to be the best that I can.

I'm the artist, the writer, the dreamer,
An expression of all that you are,
With the gifts that you gave, I'll take to my grave,
And live a life playing my guitar.

Well I know I was always your favorite, especially with music and song,
You believed in the dream, and we were a team,
And your strength had pushed me along,
You said love is sacred and holy, and honesty is the way to the heart,
And now I can see, that your proud of me,
For you've always been from the start.

I'm the artist, the writer, the dreamer,
An expression of all that you are,
With the gifts that you gave, I'll take to my grave,
And live a life playing my guitar.

Now the time has come to be leaving, it's been years since I've seen you face,
And though the feelings of fear, are no longer here,
The past is what I need to embrace,
I said, time is the healer of sorrow, forgiveness is just letting go,
With the tears that we've cried, we've grown stronger inside,
As our dreams continue to grow,

I'm the artist, the writer, the dreamer,
An expression of all that you are,
With the gifts that you gave, I'll take to my grave ,
And live a life playing my guitar.
