"Emotionless" as written by Benji Madden and Joel Madden....
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're all right?

But we're all right
We're all right

It's been a long hard road without you by my side
Why weren't you there all the nights that we cried
You broke my mother's heart
You broke your children for life
It's not okay,
But we're alright
I remember the days, you were a hero in my eyes
But those were just a long lost memory of mine
I spent so many years learning how to survive
Now, I'm writing just to let you know that I'm still alive

The days I spent so cold, so hungry
Were full of hate
I was so angry
Those scars run deep inside this tattooed body
There's things I'll take, to my grave
But I'm okay
I'm okay

It's been a long hard road without you by my side
Why weren't you there all the nights that we cried
You broke my mother's heart
You broke your children for life
It's not okay,
But we're all right
I remember the days, you were a hero in my eyes
But those were just a long lost memory of mine
Now, I'm writing just to let you know that I'm still alive
Yeah, I'm still alive

Sometimes
I forgive
Yeah and 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 weren't you there all the nights that we cried
You broke my mother's heart
You broke your children for life
It's not okay,
But we're all right
I remember the days, you were a hero in my eyes
But those were just a long lost memory of mine
Now, I'm writing just to let you know that were still alive

And sometimes
I forgive
And this time
I'll admit, that I miss you, miss you
Hey dad

    General CommentThis song is something i'd write to my father but i don't have the courage. Some times
    i think he's not so bad. then something happens and i hate him all over again. the
    thing i like about this band is the fact that they have lived everything they sing
    about.

    General Commentto me this song pretty much sums up what happened and is happening still in my life when my dad walked out on us almost 3 years ago. i think emotionless is about a dad that was the most amazing dad to anyone, and someone that can be looked up to by his kids. One day he left and everything changed. when he left, it left a permanent scar on his family; when he left, it hurt so much, it left them broken and forever changed. it seemed like he didnt care about them, and like he moved on without a second thought. life since he left has been so hard to manage, and cope with but they do. . sometimes they might think that maybe now i could see him or have a relationship with him again, but then he goes and fucks things up again. through all of the heartache and his mistakes, and the way he treated them there is a part of them that will always miss him, because hes their dad.

    General CommentEmotionaless, to me it's about the father he never had, yet deep down he still wishes he knew....Kinda sad but it makes you realize that your life isn't half as bad as someone elses.

    General Commenti love when at the end he like coons 'hey dad' its really nice..
    anyway this song makes it more then clear that when their dad walked out it affected them alot. they have quite a few songs that are about just him... the song is self explanatory, no secret meanings or anything...
