Well, excuse me.
I don't mean to complain,
but there's something that I've got to say,
something I just can't get off my brain.
And I'm sorry.
I don't mean to bring you down.
That was never my intention.
I just wanted to lift you up off the ground.
But I couldn't understand why you had to go away.
You didn't have to go away.

This song goes out to my prodigal dad.
When you left it hurt me more than words can say.
You were the best friend that a boy ever had.
Do you really think it's best you went away?
Prodigal Dad.

The day you left,
I felt so all alone.
And I felt just like an orphan,
then my Father came and held me like a son.
Now I look at all I have where there used to be a dad.
There's so much more than a dad.


And maybe, maybe you'll hear me out,
and see I'm learning what God's mercy's all about.
And my Love is deeper than the pain,
and I'll forgive you every day,
because Love never goes away.
