Why weren't you there like you said you would?
You liar, you betrayer, you coward
I would have never hurt somebody like me
Young and innocent, in tears showered

I did not deserve, selfish father
And in all the years, have I blamed myself?
But I would have been the most prized daughter
Without you, I developed my own stealth

I will never be like you, without care
I have learned from your mistakes, no repeats
I will redeem your name, without a fare
I'm nothing like you; can your heart still beat?

For what you've done, maybe I should thank you
Determined, stronger I will continue
