Just Like Me - Lyrics

Dad was there through my childhood
Strong and stern
Teaching me how to stand tall
What to learn
He said
Walk it off, know you can
Stand your ground, be a man
Real men keep on fighting till they die
Now I know I was wrong
You broke down, you weren't strong
Everything you told me was a lie
I don't know why
Oh
You said to do as I say
Don't do as I do
Well I saw what you did
I've been doing it too
Where's the hero called Dad
I thought that I knew
Now I think you'll agree
Oh
You're just like me
Oh
My mother said be a good guy
Speak your mind
Settle down with a good girl
Sweet and kind
She said
Hold the door, show you care
Treat her right, son beware
A lady never lets you see her shame
Now I see, in your eyes
All your secrets, all your lies
You were not the lady that you claimed
I'm so ashamed
Oh
You said to do as I say
Don't do as I do
Well I saw what you did
I've been doing it too
Now I wish I was born
I'd grow up to be you
Cause I think you'll agree
Oh
You're just like me
Regular parents, all of them try
Breaking the cycle, living a lie
Everyday people, playing a part
Right from the start
Oh
You said to do as I say
Don't do as I do
Well I saw what you did
I've been doing it too
I will take your mistakes
I'll make them anew
And I think you'll agree
Oh
You're just like me
You said to do as I say
Don't do as I do
Well I saw what you did
I've been doing it too
Doesn't mean that you failed
Cause I became you
Somehow I never knew
But now I can see
Oh
You're just like me
Yeah
You're just like me
Oh
