12-Daddy

Sitting on my front porch throwing down another beer
I wish it was a mystery how I got here
Smoked a joint every day since I was fifteen
Trying to forget somehow what happened to me

I needed a daddy
Someone to protect me
Alone with these memories
This is misery

Every other weekend I look into his eyes
And every other weekend I'm so broken that I cry
I hate what I've become because I know what he needs
And all I have that I can give is what was handed down to me

I need a savior
Someone to set me free
I want to start over
I want to be his daddy

So I'll leave it all behind
Though I'm scared out of my mind
Chasing peace I've never known
Father, before my son is grown
I am begging you
Please change me

I need a father
So I can be his daddy

In my new apartment, crying thankful tears
I never thought it'd be like this in a million years
I hug him tight and often, his arms around my neck
Thank you God for loving him and giving me my life back

I hug him tight and often, his arms around my neck
Thank you God for loving him and giving me my life back
