We were lonely
and weary of change
Still you took the risk
and wounded your pride
Just to know my name

You could unravel me
With your smile
You despised all the lies
Of our age
And I felt the same

Holding two names
You became a father
And the son of a Neptunian Hero
Who could only save himself

I tried to give you the freedom
I craved
But all that I gave was proof that I
Needed saved
But you knew that anyway

Time has passed and I've felt that
Teenage pain subside
And I got the feeling that
I left you behind
But you chose your own way

Feeling so brave
You became an author
And characters of your own designs
But you were just a child
And I
I was weaker
I was younger
