Lyrics

My Name is Dad

Written By: John Norton

I’m comin’ home this mornin,
and can’t wait to see your face,
The doctors say I’m ready,
to finally leave this place.
Some call it rehab,
but it’s so much more to me,
I’ve got a second chance,
to be the Father that you need.
I couldn’t see I had it all,
I must have been so blind,
But believe me Son, in my heart,
you never left my mind.

I think about the man I am, and the man I used to be,
And I never thought a bottle, could take control of me.
That life is now behind me, and I’m missin’ you so bad,
This man has a new face, and my name is Dad.

Change is never easy,
but I swear I’m gonna try,
I pray to God for wisdom,
and the courage to survive.
I’m sorry that I hurt you,
with the choices that I’ve made,
But if you learn from my mistakes,
it’s worth the price I paid.

I’ve been so alone,
I can’t make it own my own,
There’s nothing that means more to me,
than to keep my family.

I think about the man I am, and the man I used to be,
And I never thought a bottle, could take control of me.
That life is now behind me, and I’m missin’ you so bad,
This man has a new face, and my name is Dad.

I’ve done so much cryin’… and at times I felt like dyin’,
But I found the strength to make it through,
to show how much,… I love you.

I think about the man I am, and the man I used to be,
And I never thought a bottle, could take control of me.
That life is now behind me, and I’m missin’ you so bad,
This man has a new face, and my name is Dad.
…I just wanna be your Dad.
