You Need Me

Original and similar lyrics
As a child I missed a lot of love I never had And daddy he was distant Never there to hold my hand Never bought the things he'd always promise to give me Mother made up for him always watching over me Days would go by and we would never see his face In my mind I'd wonder 'Does he have another place?' If and when he'd come in he would always be upset All the kids were scared his next syndrome would be a fret Now that you are older and you begin to see Family's important to be there if you need Father never taught us these things mom said to me Now the table's turned so tell me you need me Tell me Tell me Tell me Just to me You need me Daddy daddy dearest, what is it you want from me (Tell me) I won't turn my back on you the way you did with me Now you try to give and always faking not to cry I'll give you what I can but I can't give what I don't have Mother lends a shoulder, to cry on if you need But are you there for mother when she needs your company? Father never taught us, these things mom said to me Now the table's turned so tell me You need me Tell me Tell me Tell me Tell me Say You need me If you realize we need each other, we will be a closer family. I need you, yeah I need you, and you know that Say You need me Now that you are older and you begin to see Family's important to be there if you need Father never taught us, no no never taught us Just to me You need me Tell me that you need me Tell me that you love me Tell me that you need me Just to me Say You need me Now that you are older and you begin to see Family's important to be there if you need Father never taught us these things mom said to me Now the table's turned so tell me you need me Tell me Tell me Tell me Just to me You need me Mother lends a shoulder to cry on if you need But are you there for mother when she needs your company? Are you there for mother? Are you there for mother? Are you there for mother? Father never taught us these things mom said to me Just to me You need me

Song For Dad

KEITH URBAN "Golden Road"
Lately I've been noticing I say the same things he used to say And I even find myself acting the very same way I tap my fingers on the table To the rhythm in my soul And I jingle the car keys When I'm ready to go When I look in the mirror He's right there in my eyes Starin' back at me and I realize The older I get The more I can see How much he loved my mother and my brother and me And he did the best that he could And I only hope when I have my own family That everyday I see A little more of my father in me There were times I thought he was bein' Just a little bit hard on me But now I understand he was makin' me Become the man he knew that I could be In everything he ever did He always did with love And I'm proud today to say I'm his son When somebody says I hope I get to meet your dad I just smile and say you already have The older I get The more I can see How much he loved my mother and my brother and me And he did the best that he could And I only hope when I have my own family That everyday I see A little more of my father in me He's in my eyes My heart, my soul My hands, my pride And when I feel alone And I think I can't go on I hear him sayin' 'Son you'll be alright' Everything's gonna be alright' Yes it is The older I get The more I can see That he loved my mother and my brother and me And he did the best that he could And I only hope when I have my own family That everyday I see Oh I hope I see I hope everyday I see A little more of my father in me A little more of my father in me I hope everyday I see in me In me In me I hope everyday I see A little more of my father in me

Your Father And I

Beautiful South
It was the middle of winter And I drove us in my car The snow started falling So we stopped off at a bar The beer started flowing And your mother and I took the floor But by the last dance we were tired So I booked a room next door So if anyone asks you If you come from Heaven above You're from a one star hotel With a five star passionate love It was a hot summers day And we drove there in our car And your father was thirsty So we had to find a bar Well he couldn't stop drinking And he couldn't stand on his feet We had to walk to a hotel And book ourselves into a suite So if the teachers asks you Are you from Heaven or are you from Hell You're from a one star drunken screw In a one star motel Yes if the teachers asks you Are you from Heaven or are you from Hell You're from a pitch black toilet In a highway Taco Bell I'll remember the birth For the rest of my time on this land Your mother sweating buckets And me holding onto her hand Well your father way absent He claimed he couldn't find the ward Just tugging on mescal Trying to eat the umbilical cord So if anyone asks you Do you know where you're from, say yes You're from your mother's womb And your father's stinking breath And if they ask you how you got here Tell them just what it took Your father's stinking breath And your mother's stinking luck Your father and I won't tell the whole truth Your father and I won't tell the truth
