​For The Love Of A Child

This song is by Malcolm Holcombe and appears on the album Pitiful Blues (2014).

I use to dream I could fly
After the shoutin' and the whispers were gone
Long ago was a time
When I could sleep safe and climb

The smell of ol cigarrettes and beer
Shut my mouth and my ears
But I could see troubles turnin'
Lovin' eyes into tears

For the love of a child
For the love of a child
For the love of a child
In my dreams late at night

Ain't it funny when it rains
And you're movin' kinda slow
Memories touch your shoulders
And you fly again alone

Outta sight outta mind
It ain't true when you're older
Special secrets only God knows
Never disappear at all

1st verse
