daddy said that you didn't need a hug cuz you were fine.

Mommy, i would of been there
Mommy... i would of stayed up all night with you
daddy he lied, and he knew just what he was doing
Mommy, if i would have known
i would of stayed right there with you.

you were there in the bathroom throwing up
daddy said everything was fine, you were just a little sick
you were right there with your hopeless eyes
daddy said you were just a little tired.

Mommy, i would of been there
Mommy... i would of stayed up all night with you
daddy he lied, and he knew just what he was doing
Mommy, if i would have known

daddy, he knew that you were depressed
he knew how much you were hurt, cuz he had caused it
Daddy, he knew that you were at your last breath
he didn't tell us...he let you leave us.
Mommy...i have forgiven you for leaving us that day
but i will never forgive daddy...he threw my mommy away.

It is better to write for yourself and have no audience than write for your audience and have no self.
