PATERNAL


Father, you taught me well
You made a copy of yourself
And now I fight
To prove myself I'm not
I love you but I am not you

I have grown, I'm on my own
I'm not the one I used to know
Now, your perspective seems
To be so wrong
Don't you try
I'm not a child anymore

I can fight, I'm not a child

Honesty and discipline
Justice and sobriety
You taught me how to be
A better man
I love you but I am not you

Now I've grown, I'm on my own
I evaluate for now I'm strong
Your voice still echoes
But not for long
I'll cut your roots
I love you but I'm not you

I can fight, I'm not a child

Oh dear father, I love you like no other
I showed you my respect
But you did not expect me to
Be unlike you
Break my walls, unlike you
Love myself, unlike you
Live in peace, unlike you

Be unlike you
Break my walls, unlike you
Love myself, unlike you
Live in peace, unlike you

I can fight, I'm not a child
