lyrics

You swore that you would never be like him.
So many wasted years trying to understand the man who abandoned you.

Stitches can't heal a broken home.
Words can't mend all of your broken bones.
Years of wasted youth, trying to rebuild.
Fighting to bring back what he threw away.

A promise to never follow in his footsteps.
Don't become what you despise.

But as the years pass by, you don't carry your father's eyes.
You'll never carry your father's eyes.
To understand the reason he left, solitude is vital for people like you.

There are some things you can't control, but you made a promise.
A promise to yourself.
I know that you've never had much, but you've got to give it your all.
Give it everything you've got.

Who knew you'd be exactly like a man you've never known.

But thoughts and actions are not the same.
Stand your ground and refuse to run away.
Never put anyone in your place.
Curse this life of deceit that you're doomed to repeat.

It cuts like a knife knowing that it's all a game, but you'll do anything to keep a smile on their face.
So get on your feet.
We will carry you through.
We will take you away from the world that you thought you knew.
