For Once In Your Life

This song is by Lucy Kaplansky and appears on the album Ten Year Night (1999).

Remember when they took him in the middle of the night
And nobody told you where he'd gone
Death in with morning light and touched your father's hand
In a hospital uptown, where your mother sat alone

For two weeks no one told you, as if it never happened
You held the hope that he was still alive
The funeral was over, no way to say goodbuy
You've never had a chance to show the tears you hold inside

I want to make it up to you somehow
Maybe there's something I have I could give you now
There's so many things you never had
Maybe it doesn't have to hurt so bad
For once in your life

There's so much that I wanted that you could never give
I just never got that I was stronger than you
It wasn't a fair fight, you bleeding on the ground
And me standing over you waiting for another round

I would tell you that I'm sorry, but I know what you would say
'Cause I think that you forgave me long ago
I really don't know why, I don't think I deserve it
Maybe a person forgives so they don't have to be alone

In our home movie I remember we're sitting in the sun
I'm crying, you're smiling at this girl of your own
And you're posing me for the camera and everyone around
And I can feel that smile now
