The Saddest Song - The Ataris
Only two more days until your birthday,
yesterday was mine.
You'll be turning five.
I know what it's like growing up without your father in your life.
So I pretend I'm doing all I can and hope someday
you'll find it in your heart
to understand why I'm not around
and forgive me for not
being in your life.
I remember waiting for you to come.
I remember waiting for you to call.
Remember waiting there to find nothing at all.
Maybe someday you'll really get to know me
not just from letters read to you.
I pray I get the chance to make it up to you.
We've got a lot of catching up to do.
