Conversation with the child
Who once believed in you
How does one explain to him
What it is you do
He says daddy daddy please
Tell me it's not true
What all the people are saying
Saying about you

There comes a time when one must face
The life that you have led
That is a hard thing to do
When lies is all that has been said
And the blameless eyes of an innocent youth
Is begging for you to tell the truth
It's such a hard way to learn
Hard way to learn, got to learn

Moment of truth will hurt for life
Don't need to tell you that ain't right
So come now little boy don't you cry
'Cause the child in you is still alive

Conversation with the child
Who once believed in you
How does one explain to him
What it is you do
He says daddy daddy please
Tell me it's not true
What all the people are saying
Saying about you

There comes a time in this child's life
When the boy becomes a man
So many things from his past
He now can understand
Like all the times when dad would leave
And be gone for so long
And he thought everything was all right
He thought everything was all right
Boy, got to learn

Moment of truth will hurt for life
Don't need to tell you that ain't right
So come now little boy don't you cry
'Cause the child in you is still alive

Moment of truth will hurt for life
Don't need to tell you that ain't right
So come now little boy don't you cry
'Cause the child in you is still alive
Child in you is still alive

Such a hard way to learn
Such a hard way to learn
Such a hard way to learn
Such a hard way to learn
Such a hard way to learn
Such a hard way to learn
Such a hard way to learn
Such a hard way to learn
