Hey Dad, I'm writing to you
Not to tell you that I still hate you
Just to ask you, how you feel
And how we fell apart, how this fell apart.

Are you happy out there in this great wide world?
Do you think about your sons?
Do you miss your little girl?
When you lay your head down,
How do you sleep at night?

Do you even wonder if we are alright,
But we are alright, we are alright

It's been a long hard road without you by my side
Why wont you know the nights that we cried
You broke my mothers heart, you broke your children for life.
It's not okey, but we are alright.
I remember the days you were a hero at my eyes
But those are just a long lost memories of mine
I spent so many years learning how to survive.
Now I'm writing just to let you know I'm still alive.

The days I spent so cold so hungry
Where full of hate, I was su angry
The scars run deep inside this tattoed body
There's things I'll take to my grave
But I'm ok, I'm ok.

It's been a long hard road without you by my side
Why wont you know the nights that we cried
You broke my mothers heart, you broke your children for life.
It's not okey, but we are alright.
I remember the days you were a hero at my eyes
But those are just a long lost memories of mine
I spent so many years learning how to survive.
Now I'm writing just to let you know I'm still alive.

Sometimes I forgive
Yeah in this time, I'll admit
That I miss you, said I miss you

It's been a long hard road without you by my side
Why wont you know the nights that we cried
You broke my mothers heart, you broke your children for life.
It's not okey, but we are alright.
I remember the days you were a hero at my eyes
But those are just a long lost memories of mine
I spent so many years learning how to survive.
Now I'm writing just to let you know I'm still alive.

    General Commentwow. This person left out a lot of lyrics. I'm listening to the song right now and it looks like s/he left out quite a few verses. :\ Anyway, this is a good song, I can relate well to it.
