3 Doors Down
"Father's Son" Lyrics

album:
The Better Life [2000]

genre:
-

In the glare of a neon sign...
...she laid her body down.
The damned walked in beside her...
...and he laid his money down.

He said: "Don't try to scream, now.
...but I want this one to hurt.
And tonight, my pretty one...
I'm gonna get my money's worth."

He said they never listen...
She said they'd never understand.
That I don't do this for pleasure...
I just do it cause I can.

I swear I didn't want to and I swear I didn't know...
...that things like this could happen...
...to a 17-year old.

And I've bundled up all these fears inside.
And I've bottled up all of this pain.
And no one or nothing can take this away.
But I won't let it happen again.
Never again...

In the haze of a smoky room.
He chokes that bottle down.
It's been a month since he saw her face...
...underneath the blood stained gown.

He thinks about that little girl...
...and the one he has at home.
And wonders: What if that was my little girl...
...walkin down that road alone?

And I've bundled up all these fears inside.
And I've bottled up all of this pain.
And no one or nothing can take this away.
But I won't let it happen again.
Never again...
Never again...
No

Maybe I'm just crazy or the devil got inside.
But either way my soul is gone...
...and I'll end this all tonight.
The one hand throws the whiskey...
...and the other throws the gun.
As he cries out to the heavens:
"I am not my father's son!"

And I've bundled up all these fears inside.
And I've bottled up all of this pain.
And no one or nothing can take this away.
But I won't let it happen again.
Never again...
Never again...
No
