No Son Of Mine Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well the key to my survival
Was never in much doubt
The question was how I could keep sane?
Trying to find a way out

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

I didn't think much about it
Till it started happening all the time
Soon I was living with the fear everyday
Of what might happen that night?

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

They say that time is a healer
And now my wounds are not the same
I rang a bell with my heart in my mouth
I had to hear what he'd say

He sat me down to talk to me
He looked me straight in the eyes
He said, "You're no son, you're no son of mine
You're no son, you're no son of mine
You walked out, you left us behind
And you're no son, you're no son of mine"

Oh, his words how they hurt me, I'll never forget it
And as the time it went by, I lived to regret it
You're no son, you're no son of mine
But where should I go? And what should I do?
You're no son, you're no son of mine
But I came here for help, oh I came here for you

Well the years they passed so slowly
I thought about him everyday
What would I do if we passed on the street
Would I keep running away?

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

They say that time is a healer
And now my wounds are not the same
But I rang that bell with my heart in my mouth
I had to hear what he'd say

He sat me down to talk to me
He looked me straight in the eyes
He said, "You're no son, you're no son of mine
You're no son, you're no son of mine
You walked out, you left us behind
And you're no son, you're no son of mine"

Oh, his words how they hurt me, I'll never forget it
And as the time it went by, I lived to regret it
You're no son, you're no son of mine
But where should I go? And what should I do?
You're no son, you're no son of mine
But I came here for help, oh I was looking for you

You're no son, you're no son of mine, oh
You're no son, ha yeah, ha yeah, ha yeah
You're no son, you're no son of mine, oh, oh
