This song is by The Benjamin Gate and appears on the album Spinning Head (1999) and on the album Demographics (2002).

Would I lie to you if it
Meant me going down too?
Would I be losing you if I
Pushed too far

My throat is raw
My eyes are sore
All this shouting and screaming going on
Tugging and pulling on my youth
Just trying to get the truth

Is this the way it's always been
Can't change your point of view
God is good and this is true

What have I left behind
Oh loving parent
What do I hope to be one day
Oh loving parent

Would you take me as I am
If I couldn't get it right
Would you still hear me out
If I spoke my mind
My heart is broken, my mind confused
All these expectations way too high

Tugging and pulling at the truth
Just trying to understand my youth
Is this the way it's meant to be
Can you change your point of view
God is good and this is true

What have I left behind
Oh loving parent
What do I hope to be one day
Oh loving parent

What have I now become
Oh hated daughter
What have I now become
Beloved son
