Nothing lasts forever, Daddy.
Nothing's here for sure.
Things like love that's "unconditional"
Turn corrupted and impure.
Things like that little girl you loved,
Things like your daughter's heart,
Nothing lasts forever, Dad,
You tore that girl apart.
She never meant to disrespect,
She just wanted you to see,
Through all the fighting and neglect,
I was to born just to be me.
Why couldn't you have understood?
Or tried, at least, to care?
Instead, we're giving up again,
I'll move on without you there.
You denied I was your child,
Because I'm not as you demanded,
I was thrown out of your life so fast,
I can't believe you've left me stranded.
Daddy, nothing lasts forever,
And I'll assure you, this I know,
Despite the bruises and the tears,
Still I am to reap what I sow.
Thoughts are buzzing in my mind,
How did things work out this way?
How could you just give me up
Based on the two small words: "I'm gay"?
I'm simply nothing in your eyes,
From me, apologies you'll never hear,
Dad, I promise, to take your advice-
Never again will I show fear.
I'm a liar and a coward,
I'm a sinner, and I'm wrong.
Call me all the things you want,
It won't damage me for long.
I'm the one you love to hate,
Don't act like it's not true.
Nothing lasts forever, Dad.
Just like concern for you.
