I addressed this letter to "dear father"
I know you as complete unknown
I guess it's better you don't bother
All our truth should be left alone

Be left alone...

Be left alone...

I learned the things you never showed me
Took the chances you'd have blown
And to this day the one and only
You remain a complete unknown

Complete unknown...

Complete unknown...

[Chorus:]
You're out there somewhere
I don't know if you care at all
It seems that you don't
It's as if the day will never come
So you remain a complete unknown

So many years I've been ignored
You've been gone without a trace
I'm getting used to knowing you're just a name without a face

Without a face...

Without a face...

[Chorus x 2]

I addressed this letter to "dear father"
I know you as complete unknown
I guess it's better you don't bother
All our truth should be left alone

You're out there somewhere
But don't know if you care at all
It seems that you don't
It's as if the day will never come
So you remain a complete unknown

[Chorus]

You're out there somewhere
I don't know if you care
