Letters From Jail lyrics - Barry Michael
Phone call came in from the county jail. My daddyâ€™s back again.
He wasnâ€™t calling me to make his bail. He just said donâ€™t give up on him.
All these years of dancing around the truth heâ€™d finally come to realize.
That he hadnâ€™t been the dad I needed him to be and he was sorry for the lies.
I want him to know that heâ€™s forgiven and Iâ€™m 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.
Itâ€™s hard to be a father through the mail. Love gets lost in letters from jail
I canâ€™t understand why heâ€™s still doing this. Why canâ€™t he just say no?
Another birthdayâ€™s gone by that heâ€™s missed. That makes 15 in a row.
