Staring at the wall
I never thought this would be so hard
How could I've been so close but never know you?
I never knew I never knew you at all

You will always be my father but I hope you know
It's your fault that I'll never know what that means
You left a void that could never be replaced
I'm dying inside and you'll never see

I always hoped that you did not want it this way
But no matter how hard I tried you always pushed me away

You said you love me but...

How was I supposed to know
(How was I supposed to know)
When you left me here
You left me here alone?

Do I even cross you mind?
Just for a second?
Do you even know I'm alive?

You know I will let you in but you threw everything away
So tell me what did you get from all these years of pain?
You have no clue what I've been through
But I guess you wanted it this way!

How was I supposed to know
(How was I supposed to know)
When you left me here
You left me here alone?

Do I even cross your mind
Just for a second?
Do you even know I'm alive?

If you would've been there
If you would've stuck around
If you would've been there when I needed you
You would've been
You would've been so proud!

How was I supposed to know
(How was I supposed to know)
When you left me here
You left me here alone?
Do I even cross you mind?
Just for a second?
Do you even know I'm alive?
