Father Of Mine

Father of mine
tell me where have you been
you know i just close my eyes
my whole world disapeared

Father of mine
take me back to the day
Yeah, when i was still your golden boy
back before you went away

I remember blue skys
walking the block
I loved it when you held me hight
I loved to hear you talk

You woud take me to the movies
You would take me to the beach
take me to a place inside
that was so hard to reach

Father of mine
tell me where did you go
you had the world inside your hand
but you did not seem to know

Father of mine
tell me what do you see
When you look back at your wasted life
and you don’t see me

I was ten years old
doing all that I could
It wasn’t easy for me
to be a scared white boy in a black neighborhood

Sometimes you would send me a birthday card
with a five dollar bill
Yeah, i never understould you then
and i guess i never will

Daddy gave me a name
my daddy gave me a name
Then he walked away
dady gave me a name
Then he walked away
my daddy gave me a name

Father of mine
tell me where have you been
I just close my eyes
and the world dissapeared

Father of mine
tell me how do you sleep
With the children you abandond
and the wife i saw you beat

I will never be safe
i will never be sane
I will always be weird inside
i will always be lame

Now im a grown man
with a child of my own
And i swear that im not gonna let her know
all the pain i have known

Then he walked away
Daddy gave me a name
Then he walked away
my dady gave me a name
Then he walked away
my daddy gave me a name
Then he walked away
my daddy gave me a name

then he walked away
then he walked away
then he walked away
