Father

Album: Confident (2015)
  • Father, I'm gonna say thank you
    Even if I'm still hurt
    Oh, I'm gonna say bless you
    I wanna mean those words

    Always wished you the best
    I, I prayed for your peace
    Even if you started this
    This whole war in me

    You did your best or did you?
    Sometimes I think I hate you
    I'm sorry, dad, for feelin' this
    I can't believe I'm sayin' it
    I know you were a troubled man
    I know you never got the chance
    To be yourself, to be your best
    I hope that heaven's given you
    A second chance

    Father, I'm gonna say thank you
    Even if I don't understand
    Oh, you left us alone
    I guess that made me who I am

    Always wished you the best
    I, I, I pray for your peace
    Even if you started this
    This whole war in me

    You did your best or did you?
    Sometimes I think I hate you
    I'm sorry, dad, for feelin' this
    I can't believe I'm sayin' it
    I know you were a troubled man
    I know you never got the chance
    To be yourself, to be your best
    I hope that heaven's given you
    You did your best or did you?
    Sometimes I think I hate you
    I'm sorry, dad, for feelin' this
    I can't believe I'm sayin' it
    I know you were a troubled man
    I know you never got the chance
    To be yourself, to be your best
    I hope that heaven's given you
