Father by The Waterboys
Oh father, what happened to you
did you have more urgent affairs to attend to?
Did business press, or did you just get bored
thrown half your life through a one way door?
Sometimes it scares me, look in the mirror
and see myself growing up looking like you
No I don't have much time to waste getting worried
I've got more urgent affairs of my own to attend to
Father, what happened to you
haven't seen you in a whole decade
Did you ever learn, did you ever grow up
are you still as weak, do I make you feel afraid?
Do you tell your friends there's a son somewhere?
Did you ever wonder how he looks?
Did anyone ever give you my number?
Say here's two pence 'cos my phone's off the hook
