T.D. Jakes - Where Are the Fathers lyrics

Download Where Are the Fathers 320kbps mp3

I finally got into the hotel room, it must have been mid day
Started flipping through the channels, just to kind of drift away
Every other network, show the challenged and abused
And sea of people laughing as the children sat confused

And I saw a mother pleading, with her son to turn away
From the lifestyle he had chosen, full of violence and hate
As the conversation heated, my mind began to race
Somebodyís missing, somethingís badly out of place

Chorus
Where are the fathers, the responsible ones
Where are the fathers, have they helped to raise their sons
Look at the daughters, do you see the violation
Do you need more demonstration
Are you really even bothered
Tell me where, where are the fathers

Well then I went downstairs to visit with a friend of many years
And in just a few short seconds, he exploded into tears
Slowly he unraveled, a lifetime packed with pain
I asked him for specifics, He attempted to explain

He said his wife and children says heís out of control
And itís adding to the growing scars fully branded on his soul
Suddenly I asked him, about the conflict with his dad
And he didnít have to say a word, His troubled face just said

Chorus
Where are the fathers, the responsible ones
Where are the fathers, have they helped to raise their sons
Look at the daughters, do you see the violation
Do you need more demonstration
Are you really even bothered
Tell me where, where are the fathers

Somebody tell me, I want to know
Got to knowÖ. Ooooo

An now I standing in your presence, you compassion is so strong
And Iíve wondered how Iíve managed, without you for so long
All Iíve ever needed, Is right here in your watch
Oh daddy Iím so grateful, here my heart inside this song

You are the father, the responsible one
You are the father, and Iím so glad to be your son
Now I have daughters, and everydayís a celebration
They are free of violation
All because you took the time to bother
All because you took the time to bother
All because you gave you life to bother
Iím so glad, glad you are my father
