Living on my own, thinking for myself

Castles in the sand, temporary wealth

Walls are falling down, storms are closing in

Tears have filled my eyes, here I am again

And I’ve held out as long as I can

Now I’m letting go and holding out my hand

 

CHORUS:
Daddy, here I am again

Will You take me back tonight

I went and made the world my friend

And it left me high and dry

I drag Your name back through the mud

That You first found me in

Not worthy to be called Your son

Is this to be my end

Daddy, here I am

Here I am again

 

Curse this morning sun

Drags me in to one more day

Of reaping what I’ve sown

Of living with my shame

Welcome to my world

And the life that I have made

Where one day you’re a prince

The next day you’re a slave

 

And I’ve held out as long as I can

Now I’m letting go and holding out my hand

 

CHORUS:
Daddy, here I am again

Will You take me back tonight

I went and made the world my friend

And it left me high and dry

I drag Your name back through the mud

That You first found me in

Not worthy to be called Your son

Is this to be my end

Daddy, here I am

Here I am again
