  • How you are my hero
    How your never here though
    Remember times when you put me on your shoulders
    How I wish it was forever you would hold us
    Right now I'm too young to know
    How in the future it will affect me when you go
    You could have had it all
    You, me, and mum you know
    Anything was possible

    I wont be the lonely one
    Sitting on my own and sad
    A fifty year old
    Reminiscing what I had
    I wont be the lonely one
    Sitting on my own and sad
    Forget your dad, he's gone

    All I wanted was a kick-a-bout in the park
    For you to race me home when it was nearly getting dark
    How I could've been yours, and you be mine
    It could've been me and you until the end of time
    Do what you want, when you want
    Be as fucking insincere as you can
    What kind of way is that to treat your wife
    To see your son on Saturdays
    What way is that to live your life?

    I wont be the lonely one
    Sitting on my own and sad
    A fifty year old
    Reminiscing what I had
    I wont be the lonely one
    Sitting on my own and sad
    Forget your dad, he's gone Writer/s: JAMES ALLAN

  • A.j. from Chicago, IlThis song was on an episode of the NBC show "Chuck."
  • Darren from Aberdeenshire, United KingdomGrowing up without a dad hurts you/affects you. this is an honest insight with the singers own experiences which strikes a chord within me. It makes me sad to hear it and the video - its very moving also.
