like father like son lyrics – the word alive

“like father like son”

if you’re not my blood, you are my bones.
the only one i’ve ever known.

you showed me how to be a man.
you don’t know what you mean to me.
so many secrets run through me.

don’t f*ck with family!
don’t f*ck with family!

i’ve tried to be a better man
for you will see that i’ve grown.

i know we’ve both made mistakes but you could never fail me.
in my heart you’re the one who’s molded me to be a man who could make you proud.
do you have regrets do you ever look back?
do you have regrets, don’t look back.

the one i turn to.
n*body sees me as you do.
you’re always there.

you taught me all i know (you better me i know)
you taught me all i know (you better me i know)
i’m sorry for the times i made you sad
i just want you to know that.

i know we’ve both made mistakes but you could never fail me.
in my heart you’re the one who’s molded me to be a man who could make you proud.
do you have regrets do you ever look back?
do you have regrets, don’t look back.
(don’t hold back, don’t hold back!)

many nights i laid awake trying to think of a way to say
but the words just don’t seem to escape.
they get trapped at the start but the feelings won’t fade.
so here’s a song to say i love you.

this is the one i hope will let you know
i don’t need blood but i need bones. you are my home.

i know we’ve both made mistakes but you could never fail me.
in my heart you’re the one who’s molded me to be a man who could make you proud.
do you have regrets do you ever look back?
do you have regrets, don’t look back.

i don’t need blood! i need bones!
