A song I wrote to my dad off my mixtape.

[Intro]
Lately I've been hard to reach; I've been too long on my own
Everybody has a private world where they can be alone
Are you calling me? Are you trying to get through?
Are you reaching out for me? I'm reaching out for you...

[Verse 1]
I'd look around as a kid and wonder where my parents went/
Daddy's in the desert and mommy's trying to pay the rent/
Making sense of divorce, tried to stay content/
Because you split the second I started taking baby steps/
Said you were close to me, Dad; I tried being strong/
120 miles is equivalent to being gone/
I never saw Mom putting on an oven mitt/
She couldn't hug me every night but kept the lights and oven lit/
I want her to know I comprehend the pain and stress/
She went through me and sis; love you Mom, you're the best/
But can't forget what I was thinking as I'd go to sleep/
Why isn't Daddy here and when's he coming home to me?/

[Chorus]
In my shoes, just to see what it's like, to be me
I'll be you, let's trade shoes just to see what it'd be like to
Feel your pain, you feel mine, go inside each other's minds
Just to see what we'd find, look at shit through each other's eyes
Don't let them say you ain't beautiful
They can all get fucked, just stay true to you
Don't let them say you ain't beautiful
They can all get fucked, just stay true to you

[Verse 2]
Stop trying to downplay, stop acting innocent/
Stop acting like it doesn't matter that you hit a chick/
My mom's recovered, but the scars you left will never fade/
I'll tell you straight: better show remorse or there'll be hell to pay/
And to accentuate the wicked ways you've treated us/
If you didn't beat her up, you'd just decide to scream at us/
This feature tends to be a little more than aggravating/
Better stop this crap I'm taking or you've got a dagger waiting/
For your face...See, this anger's built inside of me/
For many years, I'd stifle it and try to hide that side of me/
No more, I'm sick of it; the niceties and bickering/
I'm switching up positions, are you gonna try to fit in it? For once...

[Chorus]
In my shoes, just to see what it's like, to be me
I'll be you, let's trade shoes just to see what it'd be like to
Feel your pain, you feel mine, go inside each other's minds
Just to see what we'd find, look at shit through each other's eyes
Don't let them say you ain't beautiful
They can all get fucked, just stay true to you
Don't let them say you ain't beautiful
They can all get fucked, just stay true to you

[Verse 3]
This is the final straw, the one that broke the camel's back/
Don't you even try to act like it's some out-of-line attack/
Or like I've tried to hide the facts; deny and I'll just tell you save it/
Have the cash to buy a Porsche; Really? Have you made the payments/
Every month? You know, the ones the judge ordered you/
To pay so that my mother could afford the son born to you?/
I bet you're angry and you wish I said it privately/
But this could've been avoided if you hadn't lied to me/
Time and time again, like a spider's growing woven web/
I'm hoping that you've noticed it, it's over and you hopefully repent/
But anyway, it's time to give an ultimatum/
'Cause I'm getting tired of the arguments and altercations/
Face it, you need to get your act together/
If you ever want to see us reunited, back together/
In fact, it's better that you never call if you don't choose to listen/
Please understand where I've been driven/

[Chorus]
In my shoes, just to see what it's like, to be me
I'll be you, let's trade shoes just to see what it'd be like to
Feel your pain, you feel mine, go inside each other's minds
Just to see what we'd find, look at shit through each other's eyes
Don't let them say you ain't beautiful
They can all get fucked, just stay true to you
Don't let them say you ain't beautiful
They can all get fucked, just stay true to you

[Outro]
Lately I've been hard to reach; I've been too long on my own
Everybody has a private world where they can be alone
Are you calling me? Are you trying to get through?
Are you reaching out for me? I'm reaching out fo
