Broken Family

Broken Family
(Difford/Hewerdine)

I wish I’d been a better dad instead of being distant
I read them books and went to work and tried so hard to listen
But then I went away I witnessed faces full of tears
It seemed like every day the warning shots fell on deaf ears

I wished I’d been there all the time to see the children growing
I had to leave to save them from the pain I wasn’t showing
But then it seemed so wrong I could have been a different man
But one day it had all just gone it didn’t go to plan

I’m sorry I was not there
Me and your mother we will always care
What we have means so much to me
The strongest love in our broken family

I wish I’d been a better dad and now I’m left feeling worried
We walked to school I played guitar each moment seemed so hurried
We learnt to love ourselves we loved the things that we have done
My heart is overwhelmed by the things that make us one

I’m sorry I was not there
Me and your mother we will always care
What we have means so much to me
The strongest love in our broken family

And who’s been sleeping in my bed
Who’s been ringing on my bell
Who’s been running up those stairs

We learnt to love ourselves we loved the things that we have done
My heart is overwhelmed by the things that make us one
The strongest love in our broken family
