  • The time has come to break the silence
    To tell truth behind the rage
    The years of living in denial
    The time has come to turn the page

    But it's hard to forgive
    Even harder to forget

    I am a son without a father
    He gave his name and walked away
    I am a man, now a father
    And I swear my son...oh... will never know that pain.

    I was a child, I was abandoned
    To young to fight to have a say
    Oh God what seemed so heavy handed
    Made me the man I am today

    It's so hard to forgive
    Even harder to forget

    I am a son without a father
    He gave me his name then walked away
    I am a man, Now a father
    And I swear my son...oh... will never know that pain

    I will...I will...be the space between the shadows
    I will...I will... be the light inside the sorrow
    I will...I will...

    I swear my son...will never know that pain

    I am a son without a father
    He gave his name and walked away
    I am a man, now a father
    And I swear my son...oh... will never know that pain

    He will never know that... never know that...
    Never know that pain
    He will never know that... never know that...
    Never know that pain
