my feelings about the father of my child wanting to know his son.
I forgive but I don’t forget
Wish I could trust you but I can’t not yet
I can see you’re not the same
Man I knew from yesterday
 
But I only know the you from then
The hurt, the pain, the tears
Again and again and again
 
Prove to me you’re different now
Please don’t ask me to show you how
You should know because you let me go
 
You promised me consistency
You delivered breakups constantly
So I guess it’s a promise you can keep
But that’s not the consistency I need
 
Our son is growing every day
He’s 6 now and in 1st grade
But soon he’ll be in his teens
And he’ll need you for certain things
 
I’ll show him, teach him what I can
About what it takes to be a man
But I’m not a man
 
What I can't teach him, someone needs to
Who better to teach him than his dad, you
You have 6 years to make up for
Be the dad he deserves and more
 
You win his heart, you'll win mine too
That is what you have to do
Don't waste this second chance I give
I never forget but I always forgive
