Child On The Run
 
Verse 1
 
Daddy, you made me run from you,
There was nothing that I could do
when a child is as helpless as I was
You take advantage of his youth
There were times when Ive awaken in the night
Cryin you away
Daddy, may I have my youth back now
Caus' all you've done was make it worse
 
Chorus
 
I am a child on the run
Watch his little heart
Fade away
 
I am a child on the run
I love you dad
Im still your son
 
verse 2
 
There were times when I'd watch you sit and cry
And wonder what you've done to me
Daddy, try not to look back now
Cause you cant turn back the time
And if you look in the mirror you will only see
An innocent little child
Daddy, I promise I'll take care of me
For the first time Im set free
 
Chorus
 
I am a child on the run
Watch his little heart
Fade away
 
I am a child on the run
I love you dad
Im still your son
 
 
I love you dad
Im still you son
This is a song demo first recording.  I recorded it using 'CoolEditPro.EXE' and standard mic.  This is a raw first version demo with my voice and guitar.  The lyrics reflect my unhappyness growing up in a home where love was tough and even when love was given it wasnt always received.  The lyrics makes things sound like Dad was abusive.. but he wasnt really all that abusive.  He was just living a hard life and he let us all know it by bringing us down to his level.  I was a very sensitive child and I felt my fathers pain literally.  I knew when he was unhappy and sad.  I always wanted to just tell him that I loved him.  I would think of saying it and feel it but never said it.  It took me years to say it.  Dad I love you.
