Always Near (for Ian) by T-Bone Burnett
Now I stand alone, I hear the wind in the trees
And as I listen I hear your voice on the breeze.
Saying Ken don't you fall along the path we chose,
Remember everyone who cames eventually has to go.
This loss I fell is on so great,
The death of my brother is so very hard to take.
I remember the good times oh so clear,
And I know your strength is always near.
Now some say absense makes the heart grow fonder,
But, sometimes I just sit here crying an I wonder.
Why life is so unfair + the good die oh so young,
And no one can tell me why I wasn't the one.
Your memory will never be allowed to fade,
We will continue the struggle on which your life was
I don't know all the answers, but I will stand up true,
And in all of my actions Ian, I will think of you.
Now please watch over me, and guide my hand,
So I do what is right while I fight for my land.
Steer me save along our patch to destiny,
To the ultimate goal + we are all free.
