Patrick Fitzsimmons: Lyrics

His Father's Son

His father’s son stares into a photograph
A younger man stares back at him now
His father’s son studies this younger face
Searching for clues to trace what’s frozen in time
In time

His father’s son plays a reluctant host
To a relentless ghost, that will not leave
And all the while, spinning his restless wheels
And breaking his reckless deals and going nowhere
Nowhere

Oh little boy
You must let go
Of the man
Become your own
Become your own

His father’s son stares into a photograph
A younger man stares back at him now
