Daddy’s Song

🎶I got these thoughts trapped in my head that I just can’t get out,

I want to tell you how I feel, but would that be to real,

And even if I did, would it change anything,

Or would things just be the same, 🎶

Dear Dad, I’m trembling as I write this,

Not because I’m scared or don’t know what to say,

I just find it a coincidence that I’m writing you today,

It just so happens today is my birthday,

Of course you probably wouldn’t know,you weren’t there for almost all of them anyway,

My question has always been, how could you just erase an entire family from your memory,

Didn’t that eat at you all those years,

Did you think of us and come to tears because you left,

In my life thier has been a theft and you are the thief,

I ask God how can I forgive a man that caused my mother so much grief,

Maybe you had your reasons for not loving my mom,

But what did we do,

As a son without a father I missed out on more than a few vidal things,

Just thinking of all the stuff you robbed me of brings up emotions that I can’t describe,

Can I ascribe my anxiety disorder to you,

Did you cause this?!

People say “stop playing the victim”,

I say shut up!

I am the victim, don’t tell me how to feel!!

My father had chances, many,

Want to know how much money he contributed to the household,

NOT ONE DAMN PENNY!

If anyone knows this pain they understand.

🎶I got these thoughts trapped in my head that I just can’t get out,

I want to tell you how I feel, but would that be to real,

And even if I did, would it change anything,

Or would things just be the same🎶

Dear Dad, I’m an adult now I’m willing to have a conversation,

I would like that apology that you never gave,

I’m telling you, that you don’t want to take this to the grave,

This might be to real for you,

But you got to learn to be a man and that’s true,

I personally think your a coward until you prove otherwise,

In my eyes you have been a punk all your life,

You walk out on your wife and started new family,

Really?

I have so many unanswered questions,

Like what was so bad that you thought one day I don’t want to be these kids dad,

Again I think your an idiot that altered lives,

And as God as my witness everything I’m writing to you I’d say it looking you dead in the eyes,

I was your prize,

And you just left.

🎶I got these thoughts trapped in my head that I just can’t get out,

I want to tell you how I feel, but would that be to real,

And even if I did, would it change anything,

Or would things just be the same🎶

Dear Dad, now I’m a dad and I’m nowhere as bad as you were,

But I’m still not a model of perfection,

As a matter of fact I followed in your footsteps in a few different ways,

There have been many days that I was needed and was a no show,

Everytime I did bad as a father I felt so low,

Was I doing what I know,

I’m speaking in the past tense because I finally opened my eyes,

I slept way to long,

There is no poem or song that I can write to express my personal wrongs as a father,

Now my child is practically grown and I’m still learning to be a father,

🎶I got these thoughts trapped in my head that I just can’t get out,

I want to tell you how I feel, but would that be to real,

And even if I did, would it change anything,

Or would things just be the same🎶

Dear Dad,

So what do you think of all these letters I’ve been writing you,

Your probably mad at reality,

But I can’t help you with that,

I can be reached at the phone number and address I sent you,

Maybe we can meet at a public place,

Like a park,

You know the kind that me and you never went to,

You might not want to come because I seem really upset,

But don’t be afraid I’m a grown man I know how to control myself,

Well, if you never respond I know it’s odd, but I do wish you happiness and good health,

🎶I got these thoughts trapped in my head that I just can’t get out,

I want to tell you how I feel, but would that be to real,

And even if I did, would it change anything,

Or would things just be the same,

I got these thoughts trapped in my head that I just can’t get out,

I want to tell you how I feel, but would that be to real,

And even if I did, would it change anything,

Or would things just be the same🎶
