He said "Daddy, you're the best."
He said "Son, I love you."
He said "Mommy, hold me close to your chest."
She said "Come here, Baby."
He said "Sister, Why are you so mean?"
She said "Because you don't know what it's like to be me."
And every Christmas, he'd get what he wanted due to his father always at work
Every Spring, he'd play in the sun even if it was just him alone
Every summer, he said he wanted a brother, and mommy said no
Every fall, he said loved going to school
He just wanted to have fun
He was only five and never understood what the world was about
He just wished to be happy forever
He said "Daddy, why are you so mean?"
He said "Because, you wouldn't understand."
He said "Mommy, when will my brother be born?
She said "Soon. Come feel him with your hand."
He said "Sister, Why don't you love me?"
She said "Just leave me alone, I just want to be free."
And Every Christmas, he'd get clothes for presents because Daddy got fired
Every spring, he'd play outside by himself until he got tired
Every summer, he said he couldn't wait to have a brother
Every fall, he hated school because he'd get called fat by every kid, one after another
He never wanted to grow up, he knew it would hurt
He just wished to be loved but he felt less than dirt
He was only 10 but he knew what the world is about
He said "Father, it hurts me when you drink."
He said "It's only a couple beers."
He said "Mommy, what happened to my brother?"
She said "You killed him, that's why he's not here."
He said "Sister, now I understand."
She said "I'm so sorry, it only gets worse."
And every Christmas, he'd spend it alone and thought nobody loved him anymore
Every spring, he'd stay inside and wonder why he's alive
Every summer, he'd cry because he just wanted someone to hold
Every fall, he'd wear long sleeves to school to hide marks he did with sharp tools
He just wanted a happy ending
He never wanted to know what the world was about
He is only 15 and he doesn't wish anymore
His father now drowns his problems in alcohol
His Mother is always at work and is never home
His sister is all grown up and is starting a life of her own
He spends every night all alone
He cries and hurts himself because no one gives a fuck anymore
This little boy grew up, he understand what the world is about
