Barry Michael - Letters From Jail Lyrics
Phone call came in from the county jail. My daddyís back again.
He wasnít calling me to make his bail. He just said donít give up on him.
All these years of dancing around the truth heíd finally come to realize.
That he hadnít been the dad I needed him to be and he was sorry for the lies.
I want him to know that heís forgiven and Iím trying hard to understand.
How do I rebuild a bridge that was never really there
How do I restore a love for a man who never cared
Where do I begin to find a place within my heart for a stranger who tore mine apart.
Itís hard to be a father through the mail. Love gets lost in letters from jail
I canít understand why heís still doing this. Why canít he just say no?
Another birthdayís gone by that heís missed. That makes 15 in a row.
