I Am My Father's Son - Lyrics

The strongest man I ever knew
I never was a match for you
Always wanted your attention
Never knew just how to get it

So I rebelled...
Tried to be your opposite
I did it well...
Strange but true
How our lives are like a circle now, I'm very much like you

You were my unsolved mystery
Always barely out of reach
At baseball games when parents came
You were always missing

That's ok...
Had your meetings and promotions anyway
Somehow I knew
The more I tried to be so different, the more I was like you

Memories die hard
Love dies harder still
I forgive you
I have no choice
When all is said and done
I am my father's son

The first time that I saw you cry
Was the morning that your daddy died
I stood there in amazement
As you packed up your suitcase

I heard you say...
"Son I need you here to get me through the day"
And through your tears...
Saw the boy inside the man, it was suddenly so clear

Memories die hard
Love dies harder still
I forgive you
I have no choice
Cause when all is said and done
I am my father's son

What is love without forgiveness
When all is said and done
You did the best you could
I let go of the anger when I finally understood

Memories die hard
Love dies harder still
I'll always love you
Cause I have no choice
When all is said and done
I am my father's son

The strongest man I ever knew...
