For the dads (and daughers) "I will take you home"

#100881 2 years, 8 months ago


Takes my breath away. The love for your children is something words cannot describe.

I Will Take You Home
Lyrics By: Brent Mydland
Music By: Brent Mydland

Little girl lost in a forest of dreams
It's a dark old wood, and it's damp with dew
Hoot owl hoots, for a moment it seems
Something big and cold got a hold of you
Just when everything gets scary
Daddy's coming round for his darling again
Hold my hand with your little fingers
Daddy's loving arms gonna gather you in

Ain't no way the Bogeyman can get you
You can close your eyes, the world is gonna let you
Your daddy's here and never will forget you
I will take you home
I will take you home
Gonna carry you back home in my arms
I will take you home

Long is the road we must travel on down
Short are the legs that will struggle behind
I wish I knew for sure just where we're bound
What we will be doing, and what we're gonna find
Wherever we go, there will be birds to cheer you
Flowers to color in the fields around
Wherever we go, I'll be right here near you
You can't get lost when you're always found

Ain't no fog that's thick enough to hide you
Your daddy's gonna be right here beside you
If your fears should start to get inside you
I will take you home
I will take you home
Gonna carry you back home in my arms
I will take you home
FFF! Family is Forever!!!

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you

I'm not a father but I still love this song so much, my favorite Brent song. Great video to, you could really see the soul he put into it

I'm a huge Brent fan... truth be told, he's my favorite on the keys (taking Pigpen out because I see him more of a vocalist/percussionist). That said, I have two small daughters and this song fills me with a weird bittersweet emotion that makes the song almost unlistenable because when I hear it I think of that photo of his daughter sitting with him at the keys and how drugs robbed that little girl of her father. RIP Brent

This song has brought tears to my eyes, on several occasions. I have a daughter, 2 sons, and now a grandson. I am also a huge Brent fan. I like many of his songs. He was a wonderful addition to the band, and watching the chemistry between Jerry and he was inspiring.
