Me and my old man
Never really could
See eye to eye
He never seemed to care
It was like he was gone
But he was always there
I wondered why
It had to be like that
Til I was eighteen years old
It felt all wrong
Like in his world
I didn't belong
But I reached a point
Where I didn't wanna hear
Any words he said
No matter what I was told

You'll regret the choices that you've made,
Old Man
Happy Father's Day!

Now the uncaring father's son
Is a man
Out bravin this life on his own
Without his father's love
Sometimes so alone
I love my dad
With all my heart
All of time won't change
How I feel
But to really want to
Make things right
These wounds he made so deep
Would all have to heal
And I know they never will

Hey, dear old Dad
I wanna say
Here is a little present
For you, on this Father's Day
I love you
Because you're my dad
But don't think
It's any more than that
You killed any desire
To believe
You're not a liar
But I'm not mad
I don't really care
You could never convince me to

I owe you so much
Cuz you gave me life
But don't ask me to be around
I think you know why
So, Dad, here's some love sent your way
From the son you never wanted
And never accepted
Happy Father's Day!

Some day
Long from now
Maybe, you'll say you're sorry
And I won't allow
Myself to trust you
To believe one word you say
So, unloving Father
Happy Father's Day!

There are times
I wish you'd forget me
And that we share a name
But you can't
And I can't either
So, Happy Father's Day!
