Glasvegas – Daddy's Gone lyrics

How you are my hero
How your never here though
Remember times when you put me on your shoulders
How I wish it was forever you would hold us
Right now I'm too young to know
How in the future it will affect me when you go
You could have had it all
You, me, and mum y'know
Anything was possible

I wont be the lonely one
Sitting on my own and sad
A fifty year old
Reminiscing what I had

I wont be the lonely one
Sitting on my own and sad
Forget your dad, he's gone

All I wanted was a kick-a-bout in the park
For you to race me home when it was nearly getting dark
How I could've been yours, and you be mine
It could've been me and you until the end of time
Do what you want, when you want
Be as fuckin' insincere as you can
What kind of way is that to treat your wife
To see your son on Saturdays
What way is that to live your life?

I wont be the lonely one
Sitting on my own and sad
A fifty year old
Reminiscing what I had

I wont be the lonely one
Sitting on my own and sad
Forget your dad, he's gone

    I've been listening to this song since I left home for university a month ago. It's helped me to cope with being away from my parents, especially my dad for longer than I've ever been before. I know it's not the same as my dad leaving home, but I am now a long way away from him, as I'm in Newcastle and he's in Cambridge. My father has always been a good man and I didn't realise how much I'd miss him, so that's how the lyrics relate to me.
    Daddy's Gone is an excellent song and I love the way Alan Mcgee sings in his Glaswegian accent.

    For unregistered 15th dept 2011. You could be my son writing this. My boys don't see their father either, he beat me. We have made a good life, the best revenge is success. Don't keep crying move on. Make you own life and take care of your kids when you have them.
    This is the only life you get. Look after those who love you and they will do the same. Ps I have been married to a lovely man for 15 years and he is now their parent. We are lucky.

    I get chills down my spine. My dad is responsible beating my mother up several times under 10 tough years. I hate him and I always will. He didn't know how to raise me and my brother and was the lousiest husband ever. I hate him. We still had our moments, moments of love he couldn't keep and he destroyed em all. I haven't seen him in almost 10 years. Dad, this song is about how sad I am you ruined everything for my me, my brother and my mum. I'll be success in my life unlike you and show humanity to everyone I meet. You ruined this.

    My dad left when I was 2 and he was always a part of my life, but I've realised over the years that he was only there when it suited him. I was in tears reading the lyrics because it just made me realise that these are all the things that I ever wished for. I didn't see my dad every saturday though. More like every 3rd weekend if that sometimes. Sigh!
