Fa(r)ther

Farther away,  
We need you here today,
Farther away,
In prostration I fall and pray,
Father away,
I beg you,  my world is grey full of decay,
Farther away,
I don’t need your money I just need you to stay,
Farther away,
You distance yourself away from me,
Farther away,
How do I raise a child by myself? baby?
Farther away,
Okay, forget me but be there for him maybe?
Farther away,
Can we try to make it work, please for us three
Farther away,  
Okay don’t come back and for the tears Merci
……………………………………………………………………..
Farther away
I look to the horizon and await my sun to rise,
Farther away,
When it is dawn,
How do I explain his father is away.
