He didn’t feel the heartbreak
He doesn’t know what you lost.
Doesn’t understand the price of pain
Nor everything it cost.
He doesn’t know you are damaged
How you fell to your knees in vain.
He doesn’t know that every time you think of love
It only reminds you of pain.
He didn’t see the courthouse
Hear all the terrible things that were said.
He doesn’t know when you walked out that day
You swore you’d rather be dead.
He doesn’t know the story
He simply isn’t that wise.
Too young to know the truth of it all
He just hears his fathers lies.
Of all the things you’ve lost
He was the thing that you won
That special being you brought into this world
Your beautiful, innocent son.
Don’t make him pay for the sins of his father
He would cry right now if he knew.
Wait for the day he realizes
That nothing he was told was true.
