"Asshole father" as written by Emma Anzai, Shimon Moore, Antonina Armato and Timothy James Price....
I waited for you yesterday, I waited and missed the last train
I waited to say that I'd fallen in love with your way
I waited for you yesterday, eventually walked home in the rain
I waited to see if you felt the same for me

But you don't and you won't go against your a**** father
Going broke, quitting **** for your folks
Why did I even bother? Why did I?

I waited for minds to change, pointing their fingers of blame
It's not my fault you're ashamed of how you feel

But you don't and you won't go against your a**** father
Going broke, quitting **** for your folks
Why did I even bother? Why did I?

'Cause you don't, just admit it
'Cause you won't, just admit it
Just admit it, just admit it
Just admit it, just admit it

I called you a **** and broke down your door
But you don't even hate me
And how could I heal when you won't even feel?
Why won't you hate me?

But you don't and you won't go against your a**** father
Going broke, quitting **** for your folks
Why did I even bother? Why did I?

But you don't 'cause you're nothing
But broken down daddy's little daughter, aren't ya?
Going broke, quitting **** for your folks
Why did I even bother? Why did I?

    General Commentthis whole song is about a girl and her parents, and she gets clean and sober for them which pisses off the person who wrote the song because he feels he's left behinde...and he thinks that she really wants to be with him beacuse he thinks she's ashamed of how she really feels. but he's in love with her choices and wishes he could be like her.

    General CommentThere's a life video performance of this on youtube.

    Says Shimon
    "I was dating this girl for a few weeks and she brought me home to have dinner and meet her Dad. Bad idea. I walk in with torn jeans, shitty hair, and a bad attitude, because I was in a rock band and thought I was great. This guy takes one look at me, and decides I'm never going to make anything out of my life, and tells his daughter to break up with me. So, the next day, she broke up with me. So I decided to take the pain from that and try and make a little money, and wrote a song about it. It's called "Asshole Father".

    Then he goes into the song.
    There ya go.

    General CommentThis is about the lead singer and his gf that he had in high school...he dated her for awhile..and went over to her parents house and when he met the father..the father didnt like him without evening knowing him..just by the way he looked...so after he left..the father told his daughter to break up with him..and the next day she dumped his ass...so he decided to make a song out of it.

    General CommentI called you a whore and broke down your door
    but you don’t even hate me!
    And how could I heal when you won’t even feel?
    Why won’t you hate me?!

    But you don’t and you won’t
    go against your asshole father
    Going broke,
    quitting dope
    for your folks
    why did I even bother?
    Why did I?
    But you don’t cause your nothing but
    broken down daddy’s little daughter
    AREN’T CHA?!!
    Going broke,
    quitting dope
    for your folks
    why did I even bother?
    Why did I?

    my favorite part of this song:)
    this song is about the girl not going out with the guy because the father wont let her and the girl won't do anything about it.
