Dad's Sailboat - 8Track

There's a "For Sale" sign on my dad's sailboat
Don't even ask mom why 'cause I already know
Yeah, I knew he'd get old, but I don't know, I guess
Had no idea it was gonna hurt like this

We used to see who could hug the tightest and I couldn't take him
Now I barely even squeeze 'cause I feel like I'm gon' break him
Bet he wonders why it takes me so long to let go
There's a "For Sale" sign on my dad's sailboat

Part of me wants to tear it down
And let it drown in the river
Forget the inevitable
And pretend that heroes live forever
Part of me wants to buy it
And keep it like I wish I could him
But I know that ain't gon' make dad young again
Tears don't care if I don't want 'em to come
I'm tryna take it like a man but I'm taking it like a son
Taking it like a son

His hands shake just like his dad's did
When he was my age and I was just a kid
You can tell in that cellphone number that he wrote
On that "For Sale" sign on my dad's sailboat

Part of me wants to tear it down
And let it drown in the river
Forget the inevitable
And pretend that heroes live forever
Part of me wants to buy it
And keep it like I wish I could him
But I know that ain't gon' make dad young again
Tears don't care if I don't want 'em to come
I'm tryna take it like a man but I'm taking it like a son
Taking it like a son

Guess I saw it coming, I just acted blind
Like my dad could beat up Father Time

Part of me wants to tear it down
And let it drown in the river
Forget the inevitable
And pretend that heroes live forever
Part of me wants to buy it
And keep it like I wish I could him
But I know that ain't gon' make dad young again
Tears don't care if I don't want 'em to come
I'm tryna take it like a man but I'm taking it like a son
Taking it like a son
