Dad, where are you?
Why aren’t you here?
Since you’ve been gone, life hasn’t been clear.
Dad, I miss you. You promised you were gonna stay,
But that promise got broken
And you went away.
What did I do? What did I say?
Was it my fault you walked away?
No, it’s not me it’s you.
It really makes me mad that
You can’t handle being a dad.
You made promises you couldn’t keep
You yelled in your sleep
But now I’m grown I don’t need you anymore
Don’t try to come back in my life
What makes you think
You deserve to stay
When it was you who went away?
All I ever wanted was for
You to be there for me
To paint me the sky or
Comfort me when I cry
All the other girls had their fathers
That day on graduation.
I kept saying to myself
“Maybe he’s running late, be patient.”
But you didn’t show up at all.
Dad, why can’t you see?
That all I ever wanted was
For you to be there for me.
But I’ve moved one now.
I hope one day you’ll look back
And think ‘wow’
What have I done?
I left this angel of mine to be in the state of high
I went through that door
Into the dead of night
I left my angel without a goodbye
But she’s out in the real world
If only I could go back in time
And change my fate
I should’ve been there for you, I now know
I just wanted to tell you I love you
I’m no longer high as a cloud
My little angel, you have my hazel eyes
So clear I can see my reflection.
So clear I can see the past
That I now know
I should’ve been there to be your dad
