A Rolex and a lighter
That's all I got to keep
The watch was just a copy
and the lighter it was cheap
The pawnshop had his wedding ring
The bailiff had his Jeep
and I was told that he died peacefully
in his sleep

A Rolex and a lighter
and the shirt upon his back
I looked around but saw
that there was nothing more to pack
He'll travel light to heaven
I'm not sure they'll let him in
But if they send him off to hell
at least it's somewhere
he has been

Let me sit by him in silence
The way we used to do
Let me go to secret places
Only my father and I knew
Let me sit by him in silence
To clear the fog out of my head
and try to face the fact
that he is dead

A Rolex and a lighter
the two things he did not sell
The watch a fake, the lighter cheap
He knew that very well
I bought them for his birthday
when I was still a kid
I worked the docks that summer
And I saved up
every quid

Let me sit by him in silence
The way we used to do
Let me go to secret places
Only my father and I knew
Let me sit by him in silence
To clear the fog out of my head
and try to face the fact
that he is dead

We began to drift apart
the year my mother passed away
She’d held them both together
His grief led him astray
I lost him to the bottle
To the whiskey in the jar
I tried to pull him back
But he’d
gone too far

A Rolex and a lighter
that I bought at Joe's Bazaar
Because he was my hero
My childhood superstar
Taught me how to ride a bike
And let me drive his car
He raised me and my brothers
To believe in
who we are

Let me sit by him in silence
The way we used to do
Let me go to secret places
Only my father and I knew
Let me sit by him in silence
To clear the fog out of my head
and try to face the fact
that he is dead x

A Rolex and a Lighter, well just wow, loving this track big time. The songcrafting on this song is brilliant, those lyrics are so incredibly well done and nicely woven together.Driving acoustic guitar a happening, great rhythmic quality that holds it all together What a fantastic story, nothing contrived in this tune. I so love those tasty touches of piano strategically placed digging that, as a piano guy ,those piano parts are sweet, wonderful and engaging. This is a journey of incredible listening, the vocals are solid, from a guy who has been around, well seasoned and rich in tone and timbre.
