Papa don’t drown. We don’t want you to, Me and momma, we don’t hate you, You left us, To fend for ourselves, I was that little boy, Whose eyes twinkled when you were around, But that didn’t last, You went out of town, Yet I don’t wanna see you drown, I wanna pick you up. Papa don’t drown. That dream haunts me, We don’t hate you, How was I going to be a man, If the man I always wanted to know,
Was just a ghost?
Papa don’t drown. You left us, We loved you, I’m still trying to be your son, I’m still trying to make you proud, Buy you are drowning, And I’m helpless, I can’t save you anymore, Papa don’t drown. Resurface.
