lyrics

The road was your calling
Never could slow down
The greasepaint addicting
Home could never be found
You barely knew mother
Married to the stage
You never looked back
I was left in your wake

The weight of my sorrow
I can't get past
Stands like elephant
Upon my chest
I am the son
That you'll never know
Because the limelight
Is the life you chose

And the child you left behind
Had no strong hand to guide
Alone, no protection
Set adrift in life
You made your name
Across the nation
A handful of lies
Were my lone motivation

The weight of my sorrow
I can't get past
Stands like elephant
Upon my chest
I am the son
That you'll never know
Because the limelight
Is the life you chose

Forget their flesh and blood
I'll never know if you had any love for me

Now that you're gone
Answers will never come
How you let me go
Left me in the past
Your just a specter
Just a mystery
Your only possession
I have to set free

The weight of my sorrow
I can't get past
Stands like elephant
Upon my chest
I am the son
That you'll never know
Because the limelight
Is the life you chose
