lyrics

I can see, I can recall us when
Everything used to shine, the world had no end
The smell of the trees floating in the air
As we escaped in the sun, going nowhere
To the horizon and farter
Father…

Another lose-it-all
Another broken man
Who couldn't take the fall
Ends up in a bar
Screwing up his life
For whiskey in the jar

Mommy tell me why
Daddy's not the same
Mommy stop crying
You are not to blame

Always learning too soon
The meaning of dying
I lay awake each night wondering
Staring at the moon
Dreaming

Wide awake, I cannot close my eyes
There's nothing under the bed, I know
No monster in my closet, either
The monster is downstairs, yelling at her

Mother please tell me everything will be fine
Mother please wake up, open up your eyes
Give me just one last smile

Always learning too soon
The meaning of dying
I lay awake each night wondering
Staring at the moon
Dreaming

Daddy, what have you done?
I hate you, look what you've become

Give me back my father
The one who would never hurt me
Give me back my mother
'Cause I need her now, more than ever
