Meghan Tonjes – Oh, Father Lyrics

Meghan Tonjes – Oh, Father Lyrics

I was born to a man in the winter of ’85
Had the sea in my blood and the salt in my lungs that night
I’ve heard stories about how
When they took me away, you cried
Oh, daddy, don’t let them take me tonight

I was born to a man who only loves his name
So, he wrapped it around me
And, again when my brother came
Oh, these pills don’t go easy
And now I know his pain
Oh, daddy, don’t let them see you this way

Now, I am a rootless tree
A ship that is lost as sea
Yeah, he took the sails from me
I burn it, I’m burning slow
I want you to know I know
That you’re not the end of me
Oh, father

I was born to a man who drinks himself to death
Worked his hands to the bone
Gave his time, there was nothing left
Goes to church every sunday
He knows his soul is damned
Oh, daddy, don’t do this, oh not again

Now, I am a rootless tree
A ship that is lost as sea
Yeah, he took the sails from me
I burn it, I’m burning slow
I want you to know I know
That you’re not the end of me
Oh, father

There was a time when I would fit inside those arms
Put my tiny feet on yours and we’d dance the floor
Now who’s gonna walk me down
I don’t know anymore
You are a sinking ship
But I can see the shore

Now, I am a rootless tree
A ship that is lost as sea
Yeah, he took the sails from me
I burn it, I’m burning slow
I want you to know I know
That you’re not the end of me
Oh, father

Oh, father, where are you,
Oh, father, forget you
Oh, father, where are you,
Oh, father, forget you
Oh, father, where are you,
Oh, father, forget you
Oh, father, where are you,
Oh, father, forgive you
