Dear dad
Had a dream last night
You asked how I’m feeling
It felt like you wanted to hear
And I woke up crying
It felt like you wanted to hear

You showed up in the hallway
Where they were punching my head
You showed up in the hallway
Where they were punching my head
And you made ‘em stop
You made ‘em stop
You made ‘em stop
Papa you made ‘em stop
You made ‘em stop
But then i woke up
I’ve given up trying

Dear dad
Had a dream last night
I said how I’m feeling
In the truest of words
And I woke up crying
In the truest of words

You showed up in the alley
Where he was banging my head
You showed up in the alley
Where he was banging my head
And you made him stop
You made him stop
You made him stop
Papa you made him stop
You made him stop
Then I woke up
I’ve given up trying…
