lyrics

An old man sat in his chair with the flickering TV’s blue glare.
The light hurt his eyes but the sound was like someone was there.
The blanket he pulled to his chin the fibers felt course on his skin.
Well, he kept the heat high, but it always felt cold to him

Tired he’ll just rest his eyes for a while;
Head tilted back, Jaw fallen slack.
Achy, he’ll just rest his feet for a while;
The varying depth of his lengthening breath.

Lightly tremoring hands tightly gripping the pan,
He’s not used to the work, but he’s doing the best that he can.
Set the table and pray. They always did it this way.
And he never said much, now alone he has so much to say.

The old man leans back in his chair and he sighs,
The click of the plate as the silverware scrapes.
Absently leans on his elbows and sighs.
He ate what he can, but the flavor is bland.

Now he has trouble sleeping at night. He just can’t get the temperature right.
And he’ll toss and he’ll turn and he’ll pace till the dull morning light.
So the old man sits in his chair with the flickering TV’s blue glare.
The light hurt his eyes, but the sound was like no one was there.

Head tilted back. Jaw fallen slack
The varying depth of his lengthening breath.
