i was afraid to hope
i was afraid to dream
i was afraid of losing you

iv'e failed you as a son
and iv'e shamed you as a daughter
i should have been there

you never gave up on me
but i gave up on you
i let you go

you're so proud of me but for what?
i wasn't strong
i wasn't brave
i wasn't kind
i wasn't even beautiful

but you thought i was the greatest
your eyes were always filled with pride
when ever you looked my way

i wish i knew what you saw
i'm no hero
just a coward

i can't save anyone
not you and not me

i was so weak i couldn't save you
i'm sorry daddy
