Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Dear Dad

This song was created for Game of Bands round 81 : "Smoking"

Lyrics:

<p>
Verse 1:
Dear Dad, I want you back.
You were my friend, my hero.
And while your lungs were turning black.
You never abandoned me, no.
My memories are hazy.
They drift out on the breeze.
But one thing I can?t forget is
The way that you loved me.

Prechorus:
I learned to love that smell of smoke
that hung on you like cologne.
So when I light these cigarettes
I?ll never feel alone.

Chorus 1:
I watched you fade to black. 
One by one and pack by pack.
I watched my father fade away.

You left us way too soon.
But I am becoming you.
And next my son is going to say:

Verse 2:
Dear Dad, I want you back.
Last week I graduated.
The road was hard but you always said
That life is cultivated
through work and play and sweat and tears.
We reap the crops we sow.
You taught me how to be a man;
lessons laced in smoke.

Prechorus
I learned to love that smell of smoke
that hung on you like cologne.
So when I light these cigarettes
I?ll never feel alone.

Chorus 1
I watched you fade to black. 
One by one and pack by pack.
I watched my father fade away.

You left us way too soon.
But I am becoming you.
And next my son is going to say:

Bridge:
Dear Dad, I want you back.
You were my friend, my father.
So fuck these god damn cancer sticks.
I?m not leaving my daughter.

Chorus 2:
I watched you fade to black. 
One by one and pack by pack.
I watched my father fade away.

You left us way too soon.
But I?m not becoming you.
The cycle ends with me, today.
