Drunk in a stupor all alone Drank too much and I just can't go home I'm not ready, I'm lost in faith Can you wake me now? And I look back and ask God how?
I get my answer drink up my son I gave you everything so you'd think you'd won I thought you'd be so content But with every drink you repent Oh with every drink you repent
So drink up drink up and you give up today But I hope that you find some other way So proud was I to create you Yet as you grow older pain does ensue As you grow older pain does ensue
Promise me child promise me tonight That I am God and I am right The mind that I gave you is something great, my child I didn't want you to be second rate I never wanted you to be second rate
Shine on shine on shine on for me Shine on shine on for all that you see As you grow older great things will arise And you'll finally see why you're my blessed prize You'll finally see why you're my blessed prize
Your eyes may not see it they don't see it today Don't see it today But it takes time to find your way Find your way When you find it you'll suddenly see Suddenly see The way that I made you is the way you should be The way that I made you is the way you should be Suddenly see The way you should be
