Walk Like a Man

June 24th, 2003 by Tony

Una canzone che riesce a commuovermi ogni volta che la ascolto. Dedicata a mio padre, che ho perso molti anni fa… e a mia madre, che da allora è stata per me anche un padre.

I remember how rough your hand felt on mine
On my wedding day
And the tears cried on my shoulder
I couldn’t turn away

Well so much has happened to me
That I don’t understand
All I can think of is

Being five years old, following behind you at the beach
Tracing your footprints in the sand
Trying to walk like a man

By Our Lady Of The Roses
We lived in the shadow of the elms
I remember ma draggin’ me and my sister
Up the street to the church
Whenever she heard those wedding bells

Well would they ever look so happy again
The handsome groom and his bride
As they stepped into that long black limousine
For their mystery ride

Well tonight you step away from me
And alone at the altar I stand
As I watch my bride coming down the aisle I pray
For the strength to walk like a man

Well now the years have gone and I’ve grown
From that seed you’ve sown
But I didn’t think therèd be so many steps
I’d have to learn on my own

Well I was young and I didn’t know what to do
When I saw your best steps stolen away from you
Now I’ll do what I can
I’ll walk like a man
And I’ll keep on walkin’…
