      About "Father Of Mine"

      Lyrics for Everclear - "Father Of Mine"

      Father of mine
      Tell me where have you been
      You know I just closed my eyes
      My whole world disappeared
      Father of mine
      Take me back to the day
      When I was still your golden boy
      Back before you went away

      I remember the blue skies
      Walking the block
      I loved it when you held me high
      I loved to hear you talk
      You would take me to the movie
      You would take me to the beach
      You would take me to a place inside
      That is so hard to reach

      Father of mine
      Tell me where did you go
      You had the world inside your hand
      But you did not seem to know
      Father of mine
      Tell me what do you see
      When you look back at your wasted life
      And you don't see me

      I was ten years old
      Doing all that I could
      It wasn't easy for me
      To be a scared white boy
      In a black neighborhood
      Sometimes you would send me a birthday card
      With a five dollar bill
      I never understood you then
      And I guess I never will

      Daddy gave me a name
      My dad he gave me a name
      Then he walked away
      Daddy gave me a name
      Then he walked away
      My dad gave me a name

      Father of mine
      Tell me where have you been
      I just closed my eyes
      And the world disappeared
      Father of mine
      Tell me how do you sleep
      With the children you abandoned
      And the wife I saw you beat

      I will never be safe
      I will never be sane
      I will always be weird inside
      I will always be lame
      Now I'm a grown man
      With a child of my own
      And I swear I'm not going to let her know
      All the pain I have known

      Then he walked away
      Daddy gave me a name
      Then he walked away
      My dad gave me a name
      Then he walked away
      Daddy gave me a name
      Then he walked away
      My dad gave me a name
      Then he walked away
