Where were you, dad, all my life,
When I needed support to carry on,
Do you know that I'm still alive,
Are you aware of what I've become?
Remember the time you were still around,
How we would laugh every day,
I think I could have made you proud,
If you hadn't left us this way.
You've promised us life would be fun,
No grief, no sadness, no tears,
But look now how it made you run,
From your own troubles and fears.
How would life be like if you stayed instead,
And did the best, that you could do,
I know now, you were lying, dad,
When you said that dreams come true.
Sometimes I feel I'd like to shout,
But tell me, what else could I do,
For I'm starting to find out,
That I'm slowly turning into you.
I just stand in front of the mirror,
And I see you standing there,
Breaking your reflection would be breaking my own,
So I can't help but stare.
Where were you, when I was feeling sad,
And I couldn't find you as I looked around,
I remember, you were lying dead,
Buried in the ground.
