​Emotionless

This song is by Good Charlotte and appears on the album The Young and the Hopeless (2002).

Hey Dad,
I'm writing to you
Not to tell you that I still hate you
Just to ask you how you feel
And how we fell apart
How this fell apart

Are you happy out there in this great wide world?
Do you think about your sons?
Do you miss your little girl?
When you lay your head down,
How do you sleep at night?
Do you even wonder if we're alright?

If we're alright,
We're alright

It's been a long hard road without you by my side
Why weren't you there all the nights that we cried
You broke my mother's heart
You broke your children for life
Its not okay
But we're all right
I remember the days you were a hero in my eyes
But those are just a long lost memory of mine
I spent so many years learning how to survive
And I'm writing just to let you know I'm still alive

The days I spent so cold, so hungry,
Were full of hate, I was so angry
The scars run deep inside this tattooed body
There's things I'll take to my grave
But I'm okay
I'm okay

It's been a long hard road without you by my side
Why weren't you there all the nights that we cried
You broke my mother's heart
You broke your children for life
It's not okay
But we're all right
I remember the days you were a hero in my eyes
But those are just a long lost memory of mine
Now I'm writing just to let you know I'm still alive
And I'm still alive

Sometimes I forgive
Yeah, and this time
I'll admit
That I miss you
Said I miss you

It's been a long hard road without you by my side
Why weren't you there all the nights that we cried
You broke my mother's heart
You broke your children for life
It's not okay
But we're all right
I remember the days you were a hero in my eyes
Those are just a long lost memory of mine
Now I'm writing just to let you know I'm still alive

And sometimes I forgive,
And this time,
I'll admit,
That I miss you,
I miss you,
Hey Dad.
