Daddy why did you do that to mommy?
You said if we hit somebody we're suppose to say sorry
But you never say sorry daddy you yell now
Why did you tell that man that mommy just fell down
Mommy didn't fall down daddy's lying
Mommy why are you always sad and always crying?
Daddy why are you always mad you always fighting?
Why do you always say I'm bad even when I'm trying?
No I don't want to go to my room
I don't want to go to bed now I want to be with you
I don't want to daddy it's to early
I didn't mean it daddy I'm sorry I'm sorry
I promise I'll never say that again
I'm sorry daddy please don't hit me again
Please I'll be a good boy now
Don't put me in the room please don't turn the lights out
(what did I do?
I'm sorry daddy that's all I want to say to you)
Where?where were you? just when I needed you
Daddy where were you
Where?where were you?just when I needed you
Mommy where were you
What up pops I ain't got to tell you my heart is as hard as a rock
Things have changed since I was the age six
Yet some situations stay the same
Like the way I conceal my pain
Growing up I'd swear my name was every profane thing a man could say
I used to make excuses like you weren't the one that hit her
It was just the liquor in ya
My dad the perfect example of hatred and why am I so bitter?
Ya told me real men don't cry that was a lie
You don't realize what goes on inside of my mind
As time passed my heart ran cold my emotions froze
Lost track of the bruises and the broken bones
Just once wanted to hear that you loved me
Wrap your arms around me and hug me yeah right
Remember the first time I couldnt feel the pain
It was when grandma came and took me to church
Where God relieved the hurt and he knows it took work
But I forgave you he could save you but the question is
Will you let him in it would be such a blessing
To see you as a changed man and holdin my mother's hand
