Sounds Like Harmony - Dear Dad Lyrics




My dad was a man of war
He said, some day son you will go forth
And you'll fly out and over the sea
Yeah, some day you'll be just like me

And I said, no dad I don't believe I can be what you want
But I'm afraid that some day you will find yourself lost
On this misguided path you're so desperate to lead
He said, you're no son of mine unless you follow me

Please lay down your gun
And we'll all fight for love
And the whole human race
And the ones who got lost
And we'll all find our peace
When we find it in ourselves

Yeah I think dad...

My dad was a man for sure
Who set off on this god awful course
He said, some day son you'll fight for peace
But it's not what you want it to be

And I said, no dad I don't believe I can be what you want
But I'm afraid that some day you will find yourself lost
On this misguided path you're so desperate to lead
He said, you're no son of mine unless you follow me

Please lay down your gun
And we'll all fight for love
And the whole human race
And the ones who got lost
And we'll all find our peace
When we find it in ourselves

Yeah I think dad
You should go home
Cause you're sounding kind of drunk
And I don't know
But you are scaring me and mom
Dad please just go

Lay down your gun
And we'll all fight for love
And the whole human race
And the ones who got lost
And we'll all find our peace
When we find it in ourselves

Please lay down your gun
And we'll all fight for love
And the whole human race
And the ones who got lost
And we'll all find our peace
When we find it in ourselves
When we find it in ourselves
Dad

  18. Em Cri

    I'm new to this band/ singer after Listening to fairytale I love this person who I think is tyler? I think but this is great you got a new follower and a subscriber

  19. Felony Steve

    I can't believe I'm just know listening to this! This is amazing! I get VERY sensitive when I hear "dad" or "parents" because my parents got divorce when I was 6. So I get mad when teachers say "parents" but yet I'm still over hear like "Tyler...you're my dad!" And it's hard for me to be in an environment (like at a friend's house) and just see a dad waking around. But this is an amazing song Tyler...I know that my comment is a little late...but this is just amazing.

  20. Bug

    I love how you made this song have a good meaning and also have an upbeat kind of tune to it so younger kids will also enjoy this song as well

  21. Ngọc Quỳnh Anh Phan

    Is this like, punk pop?

  22. Davina-Ingham Bowman

    This song actually makes me think of my dad coz it sounds like u r describing him

  23. Tacos_are_ Life_and_im_trash_33333

  66. B Salad

    We are your community Tyler, and we are here for you, and we understand you, no matter what happens. 👍

  67. B Salad

    I love this song, and I really strikes home for me. My father is a republican cop stereotype. He tries to teach me to fight and shoot and I hate it and think it's wrong. He was very disappointed in me. He said those excavation words "you're no son of mine" He gets angry and curses and breaks things around the house. I just wish he could understand this song, and relate to it.

  68. Chris Roberts

    this is a welcome to the black parade rip off lmao jk lol love this song

  69. Joshua

    Favorite song from you Tyler. I love it it kinda reminds me of blink 182.

  70. Inayah Cee

    This isn't really the kind of music I listen to but I like the meaning behind it.

    Iris Flores

    Inayah Cee same

  71. L e t t e

    You sound gay af

  72. No Heart

    I wasn't how my dad wanted me to be so he left cause he couldn't get his way and cause I was stubborn like my mom who saw him for who he was and left him. He was a soldier and talked about me joining a few times when I was younger, but I believe in love and peace, he believed in war and hate so that's the path he made. He was a drunk for most of the times I was at his house on weekends and his new wife didn't know how to take care of my brother and sister so I had to. Thank you for this song, it reminds me that there is hope in this world.

    Black Rose

    Blaze 💟☮️ You're so amazing and strong! Peace, love, and music be with you always! ❤️

  73. Jay bella

    so normally I just hide and listen to listen but I can't anymore cuz I think you should know this. I really like your music and I know it hasn't been out long but I love it. A lot of your songs and most remind me of my mum who died in 2013. I miss her a lot and my dad is like this and as a 17 year old, it's hard been he is finally realizing I'm my own self. I watch all your videos and I'm sorry for all the hate you've been getting. tbh I don't care if you broke up with Shannon or anyone else. I just want to make sure your okay cuz I understand. but like I said I love your music and videos and I don't think hiding is the right thing to do but if it is what you want and will make you happy then I'm a supporter!!!! please keep making music!!!!
