oh father lyrics – sia

“oh father”

it’s funny that way, you can get used
to the tears and the pain
what a child will believe
you never loved me

[chorus:]
you can’t hurt me now
i got away from you, i never thought i would
you can’t make me cry, you once had the power
i never felt so good about myself

seems like yesterday
i lay down next to your boots and i prayed
for your anger to end
oh father i have sinned

[chorus]

oh father you never wanted to live that way
you never wanted to hurt me
why am i running away
[repeat]

maybe someday
when i look back i’ll be able to say
you didn’t mean to be cruel
somebody hurt you too
