From the album Marier's Variety Pack

Written from experience when my Dad died. A little sad but a very bitter sweet song to honor his hard life within a less than loving family. But alas, could he have been any more than he was...

Lyrics

He’s Dying (He Never Said What He Wanted To Say)

V1

He Lived His life In a Thankless Parade
A simple Life filled with lies and charade
He had three sons a wife and a dog
His only peace was a working man’s fog

V2

He had few friends but they seemed to approve
A man of ends but no means to his mood
Preferring gears to the soul of mankind
Perhaps he feared he could never be kind

Could He have been any more than he was
Could He have loved if the words wouldn’t come
In his own time the strong kept their tongue
He needed love

Chorus

Now I Can See He needed Love
Now I Can See He needed Love From us all
Now I can See He needed Love

He Suffered the day in a terrible way
He got his reward

He’s Dying (He Never Said What He Wanted to Say)
He’s Dying (He Never Said What He Wanted To Say)

V3

Over the years I visit with him
My dreams are sad but always end with a grin
He appears with the wisdom of time
He knows the hurt I gave was really just mine

Could He have been any more than he was
Could he have loved if the words wouldn’t come
In his own time the strong kept their tongue
He needed love

Chorus

Now I Can See He needed Love
Now I Can See He needed Love From us all
Now I can See He needed Love

He Suffered the day in a terrible way
He got his reward

He’s Dying (He Never Said What He Wanted to Say)
He’s Dying (He Never Said What He Wanted To Say)
He’s dying ( He Never Said What He Wanted To Say)

Alt Verse

He tamed the engine and he conquered the pipe
He wore the suit of a man with a gripe
He was alone in a family of fools
We laughed about him we were so very cruel
He needed love
