The Two of You

I have all this weight I'm carrying with me
When it's raining outside
When it's bright 'n sunny
I have this weight inside
of the people who left me
There's my sweet black pearl and my dear, dear Daddy.

Sometimes I feel I just can't keep on livin'
Knowin' they're gone
and never back again
I feel so alone
without them to hold me
Without my sweet black pearl and my dear, dear Daddy.

It's hard not to think about the things I wanna tell'em
That I loved them so much
and maybe didn't show'em
It's hard to never touch
and it's hard to never see
My sweet black pearl and my dear, dear Daddy.

As I learn and as I hurt and as I stumble as I fall
There's not much I can do
not to cry and not to call
"I wish that you
were there to help me to my feet
You my sweet black pearl and you dear, dear Daddy."

I'm not a believer, I don't know were you are
If you're up above
I hope it's not too far
I hope my love,
when my time comes, will lead me
To my sweet black pearl and my dear, dear Daddy.

I wanna live my life, I'm not getting another
I have to get by
Though I'll miss you forever
In the meantime
I'll try to make you proud of me
My sweet black pearl and my dear, dear Daddy.
