I thought you were my father
But, you're not even a man
She thought you were her lover,
Oh, she was wrong again.
And, she ran into the night
With a baby in her arms
And I swear that he doesn't care
Cause he cries...

Daddy why, have you forsaken me?
Taken me to this place
Where she once stood
And now she's gone
And so are you
What am I to do?

Where were you, when he won that medal
Starin' at her, so afraid that you couldn't look back
And where were you, when that boy grew into a man
Starin' at her, so hard that you're eyes bled.
That little boy, of twenty-four just got married
And there you were, just starin' at her,
Tryin' to make her happy... Happy

So put down your cigarette, and follow me
I'll take you to a place that you should see.
The world just as it should be
It's my dream...
It's my dream,
It's my dream...
It's my dream.

And I said sorry, and father why?
But now I know the truth,
And I blame you,
I blame you,
I blame you.

Daddy why, have you forsaken me?
Taken me to this place
Where she once stood
And now she's gone
And so are you
What am I to do?

Where were you?
Where were you?
There you were.
