LYRICS - "ACTUAL SIGHS"

MR. MURPHY’S SON

Words and Music by Richard X. Heyman
Copyright 2006


He blames himself
For every single tear that falls
And all his wealth
Can’t beat the cost of feeling small

He’s now a testament to what he could have done
He’s incomplete, he can’t compete
He’s Mr. Murphy’s son

When he was young
His father taught him to be strong
The rope was hung
Hard as he tried he did it wrong

He’s now a legacy of what he could have won
Out of control, he plays the role
Of Mr. Murphy’s son

He spent his life
Too insecure to even try
Even his wife
Could not undo the knot he tied

He’s now a monument of where he had begun
He never looks you in the eye
He’s Mr. Murphy’s son

He’s now a legacy of what he could have won
Out of control he plays the role
Of Mr. Murphy’s son
