Song For Sean

“Song for Sean”

About the song:
Over a decade ago, I became an announcer at a local stock car track. There I met a friend named Ken, who is still one of the most genuine, kind-hearted souls I’ve ever been lucky enough to know. Ken’s motto is “You gotta’ have fun.” However it did not seem like much fun in the summer of 2009 when he was struggling with the passing of his father, his wife being ill and his son battling cancer.

His son, Sean, succumbed to a stoic battle against cancer in October of 2009. Prior to his passing, Ken asked me if I would sing at the funeral. I was (and still am) touched by the request. I wrote this song for Sean, and I share it with you now, hoping it will help you find peace if and when you must say goodbye to someone close to you.

Lyrics:

From the space where the angels fly
In the air where spirits rise
I see you with hands to the sky
Asking why?

From a storm of heartache and tears
From a life of too much fear
It suddenly all seems so clear
Please don’t cry

Like the horses thundering o’er the plains
Heart set free, soul untamed
No horizon
There is no pain

The river dances toward the sea
All things as they’re meant to be
You don’t understand
You will one day

Down there on humbled knees
I know you wanted the best for me
Take heart, cause mine’s at peace
Please don’t cry

Like the horses thundering o’er the plains
Heart set free, soul untamed
No horizon
There is no pain

The river dances toward the sea
All things as they’re meant to be
You don’t understand
You will one day

I only hope you can hear me now
And find solace somehow
A voice need not be loud
To show it’s there

Every whisper of autumn’s breeze
All the colours in the changing leaves
In anything that brings you peace
