It's cold tonight,
I heard her say.
She was staring out the window
As I came home late.
She tried to smile
But looked away
Oh I could see the tears were running
Down her face
She said...
You go to work,
You pay the bills.
I stay at home,
And I make the meals

But you don't even know who I am anymore.
You're a million miles away
Though I see you every day
And I've been waiting right here,
Oh for all these years
And sometimes I get so lonely,
I need to know you love me
But do you even know me anymore?

I turned around.
To see my son.
Oh, I remember his first birthday,
Now he's twenty-one.
I missed his life.
I missed it all,
Oh, to him I was a man
Just living down the hall.
He said... I learned to live,
Without you Dad
But i'd give it all
Just to have you back.

But you don't even know who I am anymore.
I used to wait at all my games
But still you never came
And I've been waiting right here,
Oh for all these years
From the time you said you'd owe me,
I've wanted you to show me
But you don't even know me anymore?

I've watched my days,
Turn into years
And now I'm wondering how I wound up here.
I dreamed my dreams
I made my plans
But all I've built here is an empty man.

And I don't even know who I am anymore.
Oh, God I'm praying through the tears,
Let me make up for these years
Oh, have I waited too long?
Can I start again,
To be the man you've wanted of me
I'm begging you to show me
But do you even know me anymore?
