They say that time is a healer
And now my wounds are not the same
I rang that bell with my heart in my mouth
I had to hear what he'd say
He sat me down to talk to me
He looked me straight in the eyes
You're no son
You're no son of mine
My daddy left home when I was three
And he didn't leave much to ma and me
Just this old guitar and an empty bottle of booze.
Now, I don't blame him cause he run and hid
But the meanest thing that he ever did
Was before he left, he went and named me "Sue."
"Son, let's forget the past,
I want another chance gonna make it last."
You're begging me
For a brand new start
Trying to mend a bridge
That's been blown apart
But you know
You never built it dad
