Without You

Lyric

Sadness covers my eyes but there's still some room to see the truth behind the lies
Now I'm old enough to realize who was there for me all my life
Nobody was there for you but you for everybody who needed you
Nobody was on your side except of us and a drug addicted wife
It wasn't easy but you always fought for your family
You sacrificed your life for your kids and for your wife

Chorus
Where would I be today without you being there for me all my life
What would I do today without you taking care of me all the time
Where would I be today without you being there for me all my life
What would I do today whitout you taking care of me all the time

Sadness covers my soul while I'm singing this song for you to let you know that everything you did I appreciate and I know without you I wouldn't be here today
You where always there for me you are my best friend daddy I know I was unfair sometimes with this song I apologize

Chorus
I would be lost wouldn't do anything would go to the wrong way I wouldn't even sing
I would be down would be depressed just hanging around without prospects
I would be lost wouldn't do anything would go to the wrong way I wouldn't even sing
I would be down would be depressed just hanging around without prospects
