The daughter's father watches, quietly we assume He's no longer with us, but he left this dusty room

And your name and it's an honor It's a shame but it's your honor To take it on your shoulder 'Till you can find another 
That's enough for now
He should have never left you broken He should have held you Things your father never could do
That's enough for now
He would have never left you broken He would have held you Things your father never told you

The century before you, never could turn twenty-one Years and years he waited, just watching for a son Someone to go ahead, to take the name instead Years and years he waited, and a daughter came instead, but

That's enough for now
He should have never left you broken He should have held you Things your father never could do
That's enough for now
He would have never left you broken He would have held you Things your father never told you
 Breathing comes in pairs Except for twice One begins and one's goodbye  Sixty years of sorrow, he got five or six of bliss Left my mothers' mother Without so much as a kiss
As a kiss

But that's enough for now
He never wanted to leave you broken He would have held you Things your father never told you
That's enough for now
I would have never left you broken I would have held you Words your father never told you
 Sixty years of sorrow, you got five or six of bliss Left my mother's mother Without so much as a kiss.
