Lyrics
Until they turn off the lights The worn out carpet on the floor Wears thin beneath his feet Five months of pacing back and forth Long days with no sleep She says take a seat here next to me Sit and talk with me awhile Dad I miss your laugh I know These days its hard to smile Chorus: Daddy don't you shed a tear Cause we know I've lost this fight I know he's accepted me I can see his house in sight So when I close my eyes Dad Just kiss my cheek good night And hold me close in your arms Until they turn off the lights On the wall there near the closet By Winnie and his friends Hangs my favorite picture and memory When we were in South Bend We were rooting for the Irish Notre Dame was our team Remember dad dressing up like leprechauns We were clad in olive green Chorus: She said oh Daddy don't you shed a tear Cause we know I've lost this fight I know he's accepted me I can see his house in sight So when I close my eyes Dad Just kiss my cheek good night And hold me close in your arms Until they turn off the lights Then she whispered, Daddy read me one last story Make it short and sweet I'm feeling cold and tired now I need some rest and sleep But before I turn and drift away There's something you should know Dad I love you more than anything Now its time for me to go Chorus: Oh Daddy don't you shed a tear Cause we know I've lost this fight I know he's accepted me I can see his house in sight So when I close my eyes Dad Just kiss my cheek good night And hold me close in your arms Until they turn off the lights When the sun came up that morning She rushed to Daddy's bed And said Daddy wont you get up Get up you sleepy head He woke up he was crying Tears flowing from his eyes Then he realized he was dreaming And thanked God she was alive Chorus: Oh Daddy don't you shed a tear You can see that I'm alright We know he's accepted us And someday well take his flight So wont you close your eyes Dad And Ill hold on to you so tight And stay with you till you fall back asleep Then Ill turn off the lights Oh Daddy just go back to sleep Then Ill turn off the lights Written by Mike McCorison 2012
