That Day (4min35)
By: Shawn D. Petrie (2-17-2005) – (9-21-2015)

Half a mile away
From what I thought was real
Old enough to know
To immature to feel

What I thought I lost
I found I never had
Thinking back its clear
Why I was so sad

Living there with you
Was far too hard to do
Left back in the dust
Underneath the crust

When I found you there
Twisted up in pain
Broken by his wicked hand
Trying to explain

You covered up the welts
The red marks and the bruise
You tolerated more and more
And more and more you’d loose

The darkness made you crazy
The icy lack of love
Every day you would sustain
Two kicks and a shove

How could you do that to yourself?
How could you let him run your life?
It all went on for far too long
But then again you had no choice

He had a hold over your mind
Your world was dark and very small
Afraid of what’s outside the door
Pacing your life out on the floor

I was very small
Nothing I could do
Hard as I could try
Nothing I could do

He was far too strong
I was far too weak
In that house alone
I was far too weak

I thought that I could make it stop
But then he turned around on me
He put an end to what I had
And what I thought that life should be

It was then a turning point
I wanted him to die
I wanted him to feel the pain
I wanted him to cry

It was then that I found out
That he would never feel
Nothing going on inside
His love was never real

A lesson learned so very young
I grew to hate the man that day
The few attempts he made before
Meant nothing now it was a war

I was his one and only son
And you the only one he loved
I guessed you just got in the way
And I just had too much to say

He was far too gone
Lost it all that day
Spent it all to gain
Lost it all that day

Nothing made him stop
He would never stop
Had to get away
He would never stop

Thank full for today
Finally got away
Never looking back
I will never lack

What I lost that day
I never really had
I’m ashamed to say
You used to be my dad
