Lyrics
Oh Father
Teri Norton & Eddie Norton (C)1998
Luciano Martella Mix

This burning question I must pose
Though I hide my discrace
But you took so much from me
so many years ago

Oh Father where are my dreams
where is my innocence
where did they go
tell me where did they go


when you took them with your hands
did you put them in your pocket
or fold them up & place them in
a sacrificial locket

deep within your darkend soul
forever to to be bound
never to be found again

tell me where are my dreams oh..

in truth who is the Father
who barters trust for grace
in truth who is the Father
when the monster takes his place

if I ever had the chance
to look you in the eye
would I want to strike you down
or just break down & cry

Oh Father where are my dreams
where is my innocence
Oh Father oh Father why

If I could just forgive you
for all this misery
would my anger fly away
will forgiveness set me free

Oh Father where are my dreams
Oh Father it's too late for innocence
Oh Father, Oh Father
hear my silence scream
