Hey Dad,
I'm writing to you,
Not to tell you that I still hate you.
Just to ask you how you feel
And how we fell apart,
How this fell apart.

Are you happy out there in this great wide world?
Do you think about your sons?
Do you miss your little girl?
When you lay your head down,
How do you sleep at night?
Do you even wonder if we're alright?

But we're alright,
We're alright...

It's been a long hard road without you by my side.
Why weren't you there all the nights that we cried?
You broke my mother's heart,
You broke your children for life.
It's not okay,
But we're all right.
I remember the days you were a hero in my eyes,
But Those are just a long lost memory of mine.
I spent so many years learning how to survive,
Now I'm writing just to let you know I'm still alive.

The days I spent so
Cold; so hungry,
Were full of hate,
I was so angry
The scars run deep inside this tattooed body,
There's things I'll take to my grave,
But I'm Okay, I'm Okay.

It's been a long hard road without you by my side
Why weren't you there all the nights that we cried
You broke my mother's heart
You broke your children for life
It's not okay,
But we're alright
I remember the days you were a hero in my eyes
But those are just a long lost memory of mine,
Now I'm writing just to let you know I'm still alive,
And I'm still alive.

And Sometimes I forgive
Yeah, and this time,
I'll admit,
That I miss you,
Said I miss you

It's been a long hard road without you by my side
Why weren't you there all the nights that we cried
You broke my mother's heart
You broke your children for life
It's not okay,
But we're all right
I remember the days you were a hero in my eyes
But Those are just a long lost memory of mine,
Now I'm writing to just let you know I'm still alive

And sometimes I forgive,
And this time,
I'll admit,
That I miss you, I miss you,
Hey Dad...

    ok.this song makes me cry everytime i put it on.because it makes me think of my dad who left me and my mum when i was young and never looked back.i know it's not the end of the world because he still makes me go see him.which is torture because i see him with his new family all happy.and then i go back to mum and we our miserable.he wont let go.even though he cancels on me just before he's ment to come pick me up.but hearing this song makes me realise other people have gone through the same thing and way worse.and after hearing the song i feel a little better.just because im not alone.so thankyou GC :) you guys are awesome.
