If you never plan to come out of your shell,
You're never gonna get well.
I understand your reasons not to.
What you don't know is what you're afraid of.
And I'm afraid of it too
But can I even talk to you again?

Oh part of me wants to call you up,
And talk to you like a friend.
And there's a part of me that wants to shut you out
And never see your face again.

Chorus:
How can we be like enemies when we're only flesh and blood?
What does it take to make your heart bleed, Daddy aren't we enough?
You can get through there's nothing stopping you from getting to us
No one can take a way the fact that we're only...flesh and blood

For years I've been following your case,
It's the only time I see your face
And we've learned to live without you.
Who you don't know is who you're afraid of
And we're afraid of you too
But will we ever talk to you again?

Oh part of me wants to call you up,
Just talk to you like a friend
There's a part of me that wants to shut you out
And never see your face again.

Chorus
How can we be like enemies when we're only flesh and blood?
What does it take to make your heart bleed, Daddy aren't we enough?
You can get through there's nothing stopping you from getting to us
No one can take a way the fact that we're only...flesh and blood

I want to make you laugh, and I want a chance to know you better.
I want to hear you sing beside me now.
We're just like you.

(Chorus)
How can we be like enemies when we're only flesh and blood?
And what does it take to make your heart bleed, Daddy aren't we enough?
You can get through there's no one stopping you from getting to us
No one can take a way the fact that we're only...flesh and blood

I want to make you laugh, I want a chance to know you better
I want to hear you sing beside me now...
I want to make you laugh (want to make you laugh), and I want a chance to know you better
I want to hear you sing beside me now
I'm a part of you, and I miss you.

A song for you, for only you.
