Speaking of Fathers..

Sep 15, 2010 - 1 comments

You don't have to be so scared
You don't have to go tonight
I just need to hold on tight
One hell of a ride
And we lost it all just now
To the nights that left you out
So we'll let this go somehow
But you're gonna be proud (so proud)
And I just needed you to pick me up
Like you did when we were younger
When the lightning and the thunder
Had me clinging to your heart
For someone
To lift me up
When I'm down and I'm forgotten
You'll forever be my father
And I'll be saving tears in jars for this one
How can I fit all these words
Into such a simple verse
It's the last time that we'll speak
So listen to me please
I just needed you to pick me up
Like you did when we were younger
When the lightning and the thunder
Had me clinging to your heart
For someone
To lift me up
When I'm down and I'm forgotten
You'll forever be my father
And I'll be saving tears in jars for this one
Did you know that you're my heart
And it hurts to be apart
And this cut it hurts so deep
So sing me to sleep


My thoughts? Whatever. Yes, this song makes me cry. Because I miss when I could even speak to my dad. I haven't talked to him since... 5th grade perhaps? I'm a sophomore currently.
I wish he would've been there to lift me up, when I needed him.
I wish he wasn't a deadbeat.
I wish he didn't drink.
I wish he'd remember that deep down, maybe he still loves me.
We all have wishes.
Mine won't come true, but I can wish, right?
All I can do is hope for a better tomorrow.
