Ashe Watson – Like My Father lyrics

As I'm running to the ends on, I spite the ball and look around
Out of all the cheering fans, you were nowhere to be found
Just another disappointment in a long, long list of lies
As I walk back to the sideline, a tear falls from my eye

Thinking daddy, why don't you love me?
Daddy, did you even want me?
How's a kid supposed to understand, that his father's not a man
And I'll never wanna be like my daddy

She said, baby we need to talk
Can you come home right away?
I knew before I got there what was wrong
The doctor said it won't be long
The next nine months would just fly back
As we walked back to the car, a tear falls from my eye

Will he think, daddy are you gonna love me?
Daddy, do you even want me?
How's a kid supposed to understand, that his father's not a man
But I know that I won't be like my daddy

So the _______ change and the time flies by
We'd never sleep the times we cry
But there's nothing more I love than my little boy
When he smiles he looks like you
You know that little face you do
And when he looks at me with those tears in his eyes

I sing baby, I'm gonna love you
Baby, I do anything for you
I know that you can't understand, you're the reason I'm a man
And I hope one day you will wanna be like your daddy
