Vs. 1
Dear Mom
The black dye that covers your white hairs
It breaks my heart when you crawl up these stairs
The wrinkles on your hands
Tell me once again, again
Of the price you paid to get our family here.

Vs. 2
Dear Dad
What demons have you wrestled in your mind?
Only God knows all the dreams you’ve sacrificed
How much of yourself did you let die,
To ensure that our family has life

Yet I’ve spent countless days
Where I’ve tried to stay away
From the fact that you are getting old

A coward I’ve been nonetheless
Who’d rather live in my regrets
Than embrace all the love that you have shown

Yet each night you call for me
10 missed calls on my screen
Asking what time I’ll be home

Mom, Dad, I’ll be home.

For to love is to not turn away
For to love is to not turn away
For to love is to not turn away
This time I’ll stay
This time I’ll stay
