Daddy stood in the shadows of God, while mommy stood brightly in the sun

Mommy told Daddy “I think I love you, but you must learn to love the one above you.”
Daddy said to her: “I love you too”

What the hell did you think would happen?
Oh what the hell did you think would happen?
What the **** did you think would happen?
Couldn’t you have seen this coming?


Daddy told Mommy “What’s mine is ours.”
As they walked down the aisle and exchanged those vows.

A happy couple with a baby on the way
Oh couldn’t they see this coming?

What the hell did you think would happen?
Oh what the hell did you think would happen?
What the **** did you think would happen?
Couldn’t you have seen this coming?


Well I grew older and I grew strong
Yet suddenly I could sense that something was wrong.

Daddy stopped going to church with mommy and me
Saying that he just could not see the way.

What the hell did you think would happen?
Oh what the hell did you think would happen?
What the **** did you think would happen?
Couldn’t you have seen this coming?


As I grew older and more and more strong
It was easier to see that something was wrong

Then finally it came on that fateful day
Daddy doesn’t love Mommy, he’s going away
They told me not cry, but I couldn’t stand the frustration
Was it impossible to see outcome of this situation?!
Anger thrown on like water in a bucket
I had no ration, no reason, so **** it.
Drinking from bottles, trying to escape it
But I couldn’t, so I just had to fake it.

[solo]

Now that the dust has all but cleared
My reason and morals, completely smeared
Daddy and Mommy are together again
But God’s service, Daddy still won’t attend
A moral of this story, I am trying to find
But I can’t, and probably never will in my time.


What the hell did you think would happen?
Oh what the hell did you think would happen?
What the **** did you think would happen?
Couldn’t you have seen this coming?

Pretty powerful stuff, i'm guessing the Chorus has heavy backing music and the verse soft?
Can I ask is this based on a true story? Because if so I think you have good story telling ability.

Yeah, actually the verses are accapella (sp?) with a bluesy riff in between each verse, then heavy distortion for the chorus.

And yeah its a true story.

Wow awesome, not a huge fan of the chorus though, its a little too simple. Just mix it up a bit and use some different words at the end instead of happen each time cause it doesnt completely fit. good job though. =D crit4crit please, its in my sig where it says 'something to read'!
