about

Getting this vocal held up finishing this record by about 6 months. And then one night it just worked. I've said this before, but when you're a singer/songwriter in my position, most of the time the biggest reward is when a song feels like accomplishes what you were wanting to do. I definitely feel this way about this song.

lyrics

Oh Geppetto
(verse1)
Was there an extra tenderness
As your brush applied the paint?
Drew the eyes and ears and smile
On this puppet boy, you made
Did your heart beat faster
To see the spark behind his eyes
Was it love or magic
That brought this wooden son to life?
(chorus)
O Geppetto
Where did your little boy go?
Is he still running
Or has he just lost his way?
Are you still hoping
He’ll come home someday?
Oh Geppetto
(verse2)
And as he wove his web of lies
Did he think you wouldn’t know?
Deception so obvious
As if his nose had told you so
Do you wish that he’d grow up?
Do you think he’ll ever learn
Do your eyes get tired
As you watch for his return?
(chorus)
O Geppetto
Where did your little boy go?
Is he still running
Or has he just lost his way?
Are you still hoping
He’ll come home someday?
Oh Geppetto

(bridge)
Doesn’t he know how much you love him?
Doesn’t he know it doesn’t matter what he’s done?
Doesn’t he know that you won’t stop waiting
Till he’s safe and sound at home…
(chorus)
O Geppetto
Where did your little boy go?
Is he still running
Or has he just lost his way?
Are you still hoping
He’ll come home someday?
Oh Geppetto
