Song Meaning
Verse 1
The key to my survival
Was never in much doubt
The question was how I could keep sane
Trying to find a way out
Verse 2
Things were never easy for me
Peace of mind was hard to find
And I needed a place where I could hide
Somewhere I could call mine
Verse 3
I didn't think much about it
?Til it started happening all the time
Soon I was living with the fear everyday
Of what might happen at night
Verse 4
I couldn't stand to hear the
Crying of my mother
And I remember when
I swore that, that would be the
Last they'd see of me
And I never went home again
Verse 5
They say time is a healer
And new my wounds are not the same
I rang the bell with my heart in my mouth
I had to hear what he'd say
Verse 6
He sat me down to talk to me
He looked me straight in the eyes
Verse 7
He said:
Verse 8
You're no son, no son of mine
You're no son, no son of mine
You walked out, you left us behind
And you're no son, no son of mine
Verse 9
Oh, his words how they hurt me, I'll never forget it
And as the time, it went by, I lived to regret it
Verse 10
You're no son, no son of mine
But where should I go,
And what should I do
You're no son, no son of mine
But I came here for help, I came here for you
Verse 11
Well the years they passed slowly
I thought about him everyday
What would I do, if we passed on the street
Would I keep running away
Verse 12
In and out of hiding places
Soon I'd have to face the facts
We'd have to sit down and talk it over
And that would mean going back
Verse 13
They say time is a healer
And now my wounds are not the same
I rang the bell with my heart in my mouth
I had to hear what he'd say
Verse 14
He sat me down to talk to me
He looked me straight in the eyes
Verse 15
He said:
Verse 16
You're no son, no son of mine
You're no son, no son of mine
You walked out, you left us behind
And you're no son, no son of mine
