No Family - By Carroll Bryant

NO FAMILY - By Carroll Bryant 


Ever since I was born
I've been so deeply, deeply torn
Between the two sides

Love and hate inside of me
Each to battle for that victory 
And I, living with blind eyes

I could hear the soul inside of me
Scream
Yearning for love that only comes
From a family

All the years of growing up 
Falling for their jokes and stuff
Just wishing they wouldn't leave 

Touch and go and it got messed up
Did they really get enough
They got enough of me 

I could feel the heart inside of me 
Scream
Yearning for the table scraps
From my family

No trust 
(It got lost)
No respect 
(That's the cost)
Just a lonely love 
Nothing there 
No family

Not much 
Not a chance
Just a lonely love
Nothing here
No family

I keep on reaching out 
In the dead of the night
In the middle of a bad dream
I see a darkness all around me 
I feel the darkness inside of me 

No family

Ever since I became a man 
I fight so hard to understand
Why they left me 

Laughing lies and smiles with tears
Painting over all of my childhood fears
Then they regret me 

I could hear the soul inside of me
Scream
Yearning for love that only comes
From a family
 
No trust 
(It got lost)
No respect 
(That's the cost)
Just a lonely love 
Nothing there 
No family

Not much 
Not a chance
Just a lonely love
Nothing here
No family

I could feel the heart inside of me 
Scream
Yearning for the table scraps
From my family
