  He loses sleep at night
Wondering where you are
I can hear his cries for you
You were his shining star

I watch him sitting alone
Playing with his game
Thinking of his dad
And taking all the blame

He thinks you left because of him
He thinks that its his fault
Now he shuts me out
He locked inside a vault

I try to explain to him
What really happend that night
But he doesnt want to hear me
All he wants to do is fight

He must have gotten that from us
Because we never talked very nice
We couldn’t stop fighting at all
And now hes paying the price

I love him with all my heart
And I know that you do too
But we’re destroying him inside
He needs to see whats true
