about

I wrote the lyrics for this on Father's Day 2016. You can hear the original demo at the very end of the song. I wrote that about 3 years ago, not long after Lila Jane was born, but never finished the song until this year.

lyrics

On this day on father's day in 1975
A boy sat on his daddy's lap
And then began to cry
Because there was soon to be a rift inside his house
It all went south

Then some years had passed before
The boy moved far away
And then he met the girl who would
No longer lead astray
And then there was a place for him that he could finally call his own
Some how this house became a home

Before i met you i could hardly tie my shoes
Before you came into my life i could never lose the lonely blues
But knowing that you love me there's no way that i could lose
You are my wife and lover, you are my muse

Fast forward to a time, a couple years from now
And then rewind to find the reason
In the where and what and how
The woman brought the very best out of you
When she said i do

Watch her hold the babies
When the thunder makes them cry
Hear her tell them that she loves them
And you'll wonder why it took so long
To get here from that day in 1975
Doesn't it feel good to be alive?

Before i met you i could hardly tie my shoes
Before you came into my life i could never lose the lonely blues
But knowing that you love me there's no way that i could lose
You are my wife and lover, you are my muse

Parzen Family Singers Houston, Texas

Parzen Family Singers is an indy-pop band formed in Houston by Nous Non Plus guitar player and Les Sans Culottes alumnus Jeremy Parzen (aka Cal d'Hommage).

For Parzen, writing a song is like writing a blog post: it captures a moment in time, an impression of the world around us, and a feeling inside our hearts.

Inspiration comes from Lila Jane (2) and Georgia P (4) and wife Tracie P née B.
