Pre-School Days

This song is by Dogwood and appears…

All the things I've seen
Couldn't prepare me
For what I was about to experience

As a little boy
Growing up in a world
Made for all the big kids and the big toys

Sometimes I'd sit around and wait
Play with my toys cars
Until the wheels would turn no more
Than I'd think to myself...
Is my dad's car coming home?
Or will this be another night
My mom, brother and I
Tucking ourselves in?

I learned my alphabet to spell dad
How quickly dad turned to sad
In my preschool days
And the rest of my life

My mother did the best she could
My brother stayed as strong as he stood
A father figure to me
My preschool days

I remember all the times mom cried
My brother stayed strong by her side
And I would stand and wonder why
There was three when there should be four

Maybe my dad got lost driving home
And then again it wouldn't make sense
I feel alone

So where has he been?
He's running out of time
I haven't heard from him
I hope he's doing fine
Money cannot buy
Years of missing them
Daddy gave it up
The kids forgave him
