I was a kid, you were my dad I didn't always understand I wanted freedom, you got mad You were concerned, I got upset I didn't recognize you yet And did you cry, I know I did When I lied to you I didn't want to hurt you I just never knew I did You never told me that you loved me I know you didn't know how I guess that shows we're much the same 'Cause I love you too and until now I've never said those words out loud I hope you're proud To be my dad... What are your secrets, do you pray Is there a god that shows your way I wish I knew... Do you have crazy fantasies What happens in your dreams I want to know... I guess you'll always be a mystery to me But you taught me how to value life And what else do I need I have a dad who watches over me
