To most my dad is an angry man,
But my family knows the truth.
He is kind and sweet and gentle,
He said 'I'll always be there for you'
As a kid I remember this one day,
All the way back when I was eight.
I was nervous about playing baseball,
He said 'son don't worry, you'll do great'
Those are the days I miss the most,
Now im older and he is too.
I wonder if he will keep those words,
If he will follow it through.
Because now it seems almost as if he is dead,
He is never there, and now he drinks too.
He has picked up new hobbies, and new friends,
But I want him back, his friends don't need him like I do...
