Too many people grow up. That's the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up. They forget. They don't remember what it's like to be 12 years old. They patronize, they treat children as inferiors. Well I won't do that.

Sometimes I think of you
and the life before you were dead
and bringing back each memory
and the three words you said.
You told me you love me
so how can I let you go
nine years have passed
and still I have no dad to show.
If I could stop the world
and hold back its time
I would build the tallest ladder
and then up to you I would climb.
I will not give up
if you’re not at Gods golden gate
I will not run away
for you I will stand and wait
