No Son Of Mine

Well the key to my survival
Was never in much doubt
The question was how I could keep sane
Trying to find a way out
Things were never easy for me
Peace of mind was hard to find
And I needed a place where I could hide
Somewhere I could call mine
I didn’t think much about it
Til it started happening all the time
Soon I was living with the fear everyday
Of what might happen that night
I couldn’t stand to hear the crying
Of my mother and I remember when
I swore that
That would be the last they’d see of me
And I never went home again
They say that time is a healer
And now my wounds are not the same
I rang that bell with my heart in my mouth
I had to hear what he’d say
He sat me down to talk to me
He looked me straight in the eyes
He said
You’re no son you’re no son of mine
You’re no son you’re no son of mine
You walked out you left us behind
And you’re no son your no son of mine
Ooh his words how they hurt me
I’ll never forget it
And as the time it went by
I lived to regret it
You’re no son you’re no son of mine
But where should I go
And what should I do
You’re no son you’re no son of mine
But I came here for help
Ooh I came here for you
Well the years they passed so slowly
I thought about him everyday
What would I do if we passed on the street
Would I keep running away
In and out of hiding places
But soon I’d have to face the facts
That we’d have to sit down and talk it over
And that would mean going back
They say that time is a healer
And now my wounds are not the same
Well I rang that bell with my heart in my mouth
I had to hear what he’d say
He sat me down to talk to me
He looked me straight in the eyes
He said
You’re no son you’re no son of mine
You’re no son you’re no son of mine
When you walked out you left us behind
And you’re no son you’re no son of mine
Ooh his words how they hurt me
I’ll never forget it
And as the time it went by
I lived to regret it
You’re no son you’re no son of mine
But where should I go
And what should I do
You’re no son you’re no son of mine
But I came here for help
Ooh I was looking for you
You’re no son you’re no son of mine oh
You’re no son aah yeah aah yeah
Aah yeah aah yeah aah yeah
You’re no son you’re no son of mine
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh
You’re no son of mine
No son of mine
You’re no son you’re no son
You’re no son of mine
You’re no son of mine
