All my father's legacy is handed down on angel wings,
A bittersweet melody is now mine to sing.
Every precious memory and broken-hearted tragedy,
Will walk into eternity but not fade away.
If you will go and not return, leave me some words of wisdom.
If I cannot follow anymore, I promise to teach what I have learned.
If you will go and not return...

How do years so far away so suddenly evaporate?
Fortune smiles with teeth of jade and the greediest eyes.
How I long for that embrace, the strongest arms and troubled face,
Smoky air and awkward grace that made me feel safe.

If you will go and not return, leave me some words of wisdom.
If I cannot follow anymore, I promise to teach what I have learned.
If you will go and not return...

Who was it that said to me that heroes will live forever?
And where are they now, now that I'm standing alone?

If you will go and not return, leave me some words of wisdom.
If I cannot follow anymore, I promise to teach what I have learned.
If I cannot follow anymore, I promise to teach what I have learned.

If you will go and not return...
