My Father

When I was young, I knew no different
When I was young, I didn't really care
When I was young, It made no difference
When I was young, You were never there

I got a little older, I still didn't know you
I got a little older, And I got bullied
I got a little older, I had never seen you
I got a little older, And I got a little worried

As I grew up, I thought I knew the truth
As I grew up, My mother lied to me
As I grew up, MY thoughts went through the roof
As I grew up, I'd cry in my sleep

Now I'm a woman, I still dont know you
Now I'm a woman, Theres many things I want to do
Now I'm a woman, I wish to see your face
Now I'm a woman, I pray with faith......

That I will see you face to face
