Hey, Dad,
I wanted you to know, as I write this letter for you today,
That I don't, don't blame you for your sins 'cause I have my own tucked away
And I rise to face the day.

Hey, Dad,
The ceiling's still the same as it was when I woke up without you.
That first day, the day I lost you, Dad, I didn't know what I was supposed to do—
The others didn't, too.

It's hard to write this letter when I don't know where to send,
They say that it'll get better, but it's like it never ends,
I think I'm getting over it, and then I remember why
I'll never get to tell you that I

(Chorus)
I want you to come home, I need you here,
'Cause it's hard to hold my head up high.
Without you chasing away my fears,
I have to think about my life and why you would just die.

Hey, Dad,
Life still is hard to do when you know something important is gone,
And I, I don't know how to face the world without you every dawn,
'Cause everything feels wrong.

It's hard to write this letter when I don't know where to send,
They say that it'll get better, but it's like it never ends,
I think I'm getting over it, and then I remember why
I'll never get to tell you that I

(Chorus)
I want you to come home, I need you here,
'Cause it's hard to hold my head up high.
Without you chasing away my fears,
I have to think about my life and why you would just die.
Why did you have to die?

(musical interlude)

I think I'm getting over it, and then I remember why
I'll never get to tell you that I

(Chorus)
I want you to come home, I need you here,
'Cause it's hard to hold my head up high.
Without you chasing away my fears,
I have to think about my life and why—

I want you to come home, I need you here,
'Cause it's hard to hold my head up high.
Without you chasing away my fears,
I have to think about my life and why you would just die.

Hey, Dad,
It's getting pretty late, and I know you wouldn't let me stay up,
But you, you shouldn't worry, Dad, because for me your love was always enough.
I promise I'll be tough.
