In My Hands

Written By: David Doze

In My Hands
By David Doze

When my daddy died
He left a photograph
Of happy faces from the past

I’m standing there
My eyes on him
Believing
Holding hands

If I could I’d go back in time
I’d ask him the questions on my mind

How have you been?
Can we just talk?
It’s been so long
And I’m feeling lost

Where are you now?
Please don’t go
Can we be friends?
Like we were back when

You’re fast asleep
Tired of the day
The TV mumbles
Nothing left to say

I’m standing here
My eyes on you
Silent
Empty hands

If I could I’d go back in time
I’d ask him the questions on my mind

How have you been?
Can we just talk?
It’s been so long
And I’m feeling lost

Where are you now?
Please don’t go
Can we be friends?
Like we were back when

My daughter’s face
Clouded in dreams
Gone is the anger
She feels for me

I’m standing there
My eyes on her
Seeking
Praying hands

If I could I’d go back in time
I’d ask him the questions on my mind

How have you been?
Can we just talk?
It’s been so long
And I’m feeling lost

Where are you now?
Please don’t go
Can we be friends?
Like we were back when

My reflection
Staring back
Splash of water
Won’t change the facts

I’m standing here
My eyes on me
Crying
Folded hands

If I could I’d go back in time
I’d ask him the questions on my mind

How have you been?
Can we just talk?
It’s been so long
And I’m feeling lost

Where are you now?
Please don’t go
Can we be friends?
Like we were back when

A Better Future

Written By: David Doze

There’s a man on the moon
He’s digging in the dirt
Planning for the future
When we’re done with earth

He’s looking a better future
One that really works
Full of bubble hats, bubble pants, bubble shorts, bubble skirts

We’re going down, down, down

There’s a redwood by the ocean
300 years old
Its branches scratch the sky
When the winds blow cold

There’s a better future
One that really works
Take it down and make a table
A bigger closet for your shirts

We’re going down, down, down

Our feet are too big
And our dreams too small
Our mouths are shut
We’re not listening at all

The voices of truth
Inside our heads
Come from books we’ve never opened
Books we’ve never read

There’s a man across the river
All dressed in white
He says democracy is coming
So you better get yourself right

He promises a better future
One that really works
You just have to walk like him, talk like him, pray like him, first

We’re going down, down, down

Our feet are too big
And our dreams too small
Our mouths are shut
We’re not listening at all

The voices of truth
Inside our heads
Come from books we’ve never opened
Books we’ve never read

There’s a man across the ocean
All dressed in black
He tells the world clearly
He wants his land back

He promises a better future
One that really works
So kills his mother, brother, father, sister, daughter, and a few jerks…

We’re going down, down, down

Our feet are too big
And our dreams too small
Our mouths are shut
We’re not listening at all

The voices of truth
Inside our heads
Come from books we’ve never opened
Books we’ve never read

We’re going down, down, down
