***

Verse I
I couldn't walk towards you
we've already drifted away
I couldn't talk about the past
those words, I'm afraid to say
We looked at each other
longing for yesterday
Maybe this wouldn't happened
if you decided to stay

I missed you but I couldn't tell you

Chorus
I hate you for being cold
Yet you burned yourself to keep me warm
I hate you for leaving me
Yet you silently protected me from harm
I hate you for being silent
Yet you found the right words to comfort me
Yes, I hate you
But you're still the most precious guy to me

Verse II
I couldn't look at your back
you used to put me there
I couldn't touch your hand
you used to hold my fingers
You said you were a king
and I was your princess
But you've forgotten me
for trying to be the best

Could we go back to the past and play again

Chorus
I hate you for being cold
Yet you burned yourself to keep me warm
I hate you for leaving me
Yet you silently protected me from harm
I hate you for being silent
Yet you found the right words to comfort me
Yes, I hate you
But you're still the most precious guy to me

Bridge
Now that you're here
I want to say it so bad
I missed you (adlib, spoken)
I missed you, Dad (adlib, spoken)

Chorus
I hate you for being cold
Yet you burned yourself to keep me warm
I hate you for leaving me
Yet you silently protected me from harm
I hate you for being silent
Yet you found the right words to comfort me
Yes, I hate you
But you're still my hero, my king, my father
Yes, I hate you
But more than anything, I love you
