"See Your Face"

VS. 1 I know, you're up there watching me
And your ashamed for the things I've done
But sometimes it's hard to be the man I'm supposed be
Without you here, I'm a lonely son

I try so hard to make you proud
But sometimes I fall on my face
It's just so easy to go with the crowd
But I know it's not my place

Chorus: I look up, and see your face ----- And all I can see, are tears in your eyes
I know sometimes I dissapoint you ----- And all I can do, is keep trying
So that when I finally see you ------ I can see you smiling


Vs. 2 I know you've taught me right from wrong
But still I lose my way
And you're there to help me right along
So that I'll do better today I

I try so hard to keep on going
But sometimes I don't think I can
It's just so easy to get caught in the moment
And forget where I am

Chorus: I look up, and see your face --------- And all I can see, are tears in your eyes
I know sometimes I disappoint you ------- And all I can do, is keep trying
So that when, I finally see you ------- I can see you smiling
(oh's like in "last kiss" in the pearl jam cover) Oh......oh......(through the first two parts, then humming)

Ending: I know you're up there watching me To help me right along

Song background: My father died when I was 8 and I've been raised by my mom. It's half a song about living without him and not having God here personally even though he is a father and there's no physical being here.

I've performed this song once at a talent show and it got a good response, just wanted to know everyone else's opinion now. I'm 19 and have been playing guitar for 5 years and started writing my own music about 3 years ago.

Even if they wern't this is pretty inspirational. It captures the way every one feels pretty much on a daily basis. 5/5

Thanks for the input guys. Yeah, it's pretty much a song with the christian aspect to it, but even if it weren't, it's still partially about growing up without a father figure there. I'm glad ya liked it.
