Longtime

A boy alone in his room
A stratomatic game in view
I see Hal Jordan on a page
They were green and yellow days

I'll be at this a long time...

Father truck driving man
Bounce a quarter off his bed
Spending summers in New York
With the mother you adored

They were at this a long time...
An only child Akron Ohio
What did you see?
Little Bruce Lee?

Oh the myth of you
Oh the life of you

How your mind did bloom
Jack and Flannery helped you move
But your sense of wonder and delight
Would take us to Nairobi nights
And all the people you did meet
Their admiration did you keep
And your well of empathy
That the earth so dearly needs

You were at this a long time...
Renaissance man
You were my dad
What did you see?
Is it in me?

Even if you could appear
I've lost my innocence I fear
I lack the ears with which to hear
And the eyes with which to see

You were at this a long time...
We’ll be at this a long time...
An only child Akron Ohio
What did you see?
Little Bruce Lee?
An only child Akron Ohio
What did you see?
Is it in me?

You're the myth of me
You're the life of me
