Memories Of Dad

Memories Of Dad
copyright Dwayne Ferris

When my daddy died a part of me went with him
And the tears I shed they felt like rain that day
For the closeness that we had as a family
And the memories I will cherish for always

For he loved the beauty that God placed around him
And the sickness that he had he tried not to bare
He learned to accept the things upon him
And he'd say what's meant to be will be no matter where

Well he worked so long and hard for his family
He never worried about things he didn't have
For life he said is only how you make it
You're not measured by the treasures that you have

For he loved the beauty that God placed around him
And the sickness that he had he tried not to bare
As he learned to accept the things upon him
And he'd say what's meant to be will be no matter where

Since my daddy died my life is oh so different
And I know that things can never be the same
For at special times the emptiness gets stronger
And my mind goes back and brings me all the pain

For he loved the beauty that God placed around him
And the sickness that he had he tried not to bare
He learned to accept the things upon him
And he'd say what's meant to be will be no matter where
And he'd say what's meant to be will be no matter where

Biography:

Dwayne Ferris lives in Mill Cove, NB and he has been writing songs since the
early 1990's. Very few people knew of his song writing and singing ability until
2014. In May 2015 he won an Akademia Music Award for his original song
Memories Of Dad. That song was an awakening for Dwayne Ferris' music and
his songs are now playing on radio stations around the world. Dwayne writes from
deep within his heart and soul about life's peaks and valleys and he takes the
listener on a musical journey with him. His songs are very visual and evoke
emotion -- sadness, loneliness, love, spiritualism, happiness, comfort, etc

A very serious and highly disciplined songwriter, Dwayne's passion lies in his
music. He will take an idea or a life event, write the lyrics, compose a melody
and then sing it to his audience putting his heart and soul into it. Dwayne is
also a very benevolent person and uses his music in fundraisers to help those
in need. A heart of gold, modest and humble with the songwriting capability
of the legends in the music industry.
