3 Doors Down - Father's Son Lyrics

3 Doors Down Seventeen Days cover art
sponsored links

In the glare of a neon sign
She laid her body down
The damned walked in beside her
And laid his money down

He said don't try to scream now
But I want this one to hurt
And tonight my pretty one
I'm gonna get my money's worth

He said they never listened
She said they'd never understand
That I don't this for pleasure
I just do it cause I can

I swear I didn't want to
And I swear I didn't know
That things like this could happen
To a seventeen year old

[Chorus]
And I've bundled up all these fears inside
And I've bottled up all of this pain
And no one or nothing can take this away
But I won't let it happen again
Never again

In the haze of a smokey room
He chokes that bottle down
It's been a month since her saw her face
Underneath the blood stained gown

He thinks about that little girl
And the one he has at home
And wonders what if that was my little girl
Walkin' down that road alone

[Chorus]
Never again
No

Maybe I'm just crazy or the devil got inside
Either way my soul is gone
And I'll end this all tonight
The one hand throws the whiskey
And the other throws the gun
As he cries out to the heavens
I am not my father's son

[Chorus]
Never again
No
