Do You Even Know Me Anymore

“It’s cold tonight”
I heard her say
She was staring out the window as
I came home late
She tried to smile
But looked away
Oh but I could see the tears were
running down her face
She said “You go to work
You pay the bills
I stay at home
And I make the meals

But you don’t even know who I am
anymore
You’re a million miles away
Though I see you every day
And I’ve been waiting right here
Over all these years
And sometimes I get so lonely
I need to know you love me
But do you even know me
anymore?”

I turned around
To see my son
Well I remember his first birthday.
Now he’s 21
I missed his life
I missed it all
Oh to him I was a man just living
down the hall
He said “I learned to live
Without you Dad
But I’d give it all
Just to have you back

But you don’t even know who I am
anymore
I used to wait at all my games
But still you never came
And I’ve been waiting right here
Over all these years
For the time you said you’d owe me
I wanted you to show me
But do you even know me
anymore?”

I’ve watched my days
Turn into years
And now I’m wondering how I
wound up here
I dreamed my dreams
I made my plans
But all I’ve built here is an empty
man

And I don’t even know who I am
anymore
God I’m praying through the tears
Let me make up all these years
Oh have I waited too long?
Can I start again?
To be the man You’ve wanted of me
I’m begging You to show me
But do You even know me
anymore?
