Back to Pilgrim's Kiss

The last time I saw my father
We were sailing out on the sea
And the currents that used to break us
They rested patiently

The wind said that heaven was open
The clouds framed a hole in the sky
Never a word was spoken between my father and I

Then from out of the blue I said I love you
And I meant it with all that I had
I was sorry the words came so seldom
Between this wayward son and his dad
And as I broke out in waves of emotion
I threw my father's ashes 

Out on the ocean, out on the sea
Out over the ocean, my father and me

The last time I saw my father
He had done all that he could do
Worked like a fool to break even
Then decided that he was through

He suffered some outrageous fortune
And took a few on the chin
Now he's standing at the gate of Saint Peter, dying to get in

Then from out of the blue I said I love you
To the sun and the sky and the sea
To the sway and the sound of the water
I said watch my father for me
And as I broke out in waves of emotion
I threw my father's ashes 

Out on the ocean, out on the sea
Out over the ocean, my father and me

O - o - o - o - oh
The wind and the water took him
Ho - o - o - o - ome
My father is finally free to
Ro - o - o - o - oam

Then from out of the blue I heard I love you
Son I did the best that I could
I hope one day you'll forgive me
I knew that I would
Broken by the waves of emotion
I watched my father's ashes

Fall in the ocean, into the sea
Out over the ocean, my father and me

My father and me
My father and me
My father and me
My father
