lyrics

Do I repeat my father mistakes?
Will my children resent me?
Do I grow old and die alone?
Or will my children bury me?
And I feel that I’ve walked home every day in the rain,
And I followed you because you said you knew my pain.
And if I being evil, know how to give goodness to my children,
how much more will the father give to those who ask of him?
I carry half of my father, and I carry half of my mother.
I carry half of their dreams and I carry half of their failures.
I am terrified of raising a child, their life in my hand,
But somehow terrified at the thought that I may die without them.
And to my future children, should I even entrusted with them.
I’m sure I’m unprepared, for the gift that I’ve been given.
I will do my best for you, whatever that may be.
You never know want, and will never know need.
I will never stop trying, and I will never give up.
Supplying correction, I pray it shown in love.
Grace you are good and I’m just here trying.
Oh father’s let go down, wont you come one down.
Do I repeat my father mistakes?
Will my children resent me?
Do I grow old and die alone?
Or will my children bury me?
