The Gift Lyrics

8. The Gift
[Teacher:]
I’m glad you could meet me
I’m here about your son
I’ve never seen a mind like his
Especially so young

He’s got a gift for numbers
Never known before
An outstanding genius
Who shouldn’t be ignored

[Father:]
You must be mistaken
He’s useless and he’s weak
I see no sign of genius
The boy can hardly speak

He just sits there, lifeless
For hours at a time
No expression on his face
His eyes staring into space!

[Teacher:]
How can you be so heartless
There must be so much more that we can do

[Father:]
Who are you to judge me,
You don’t even know what we’ve been through!

[Teacher:]
Just give him more attention
You’ll see there’s more to him than meets the eye

[Father:]
Fine! I’ll try to help the child
Better not wasting my time!
