Are You Winning, Son?

Day By Dave

Are you winning son?
Yes thanks dad
And I thank you for coming and asking that
I appreciate you trying to
Ask me though you may not understand

Are you winning son?
No dad, the shame
I just donated three thousand dollars
So this girl would say my name
Forgive me for what l’ve done
I cannot believe that you’ve become a simp son

Are you winning son?
Dad no, I’m not, and dad it’s taking its toll, a lot
3000 hours, I’ve played this game, joined a tournament today
And guess what dad, I didn’t win dad
So all I’ve done dad, has been for nothing dad
I’m feeling real bad, it isn’t even dad
That I’ve not won, you see the thing is dad
It’s stopped being that fun, being that fun
L’m so sorry, you’ve seen me like this
I’m a failure maybe it’s time to quit
But thanks for asking, at least I tried
Now leave me alone to sit and cry

Are you winning son?
L’ve transcended
Beyond the need for dualistic notions of competitive
But l’m humbled dad, you came to me
So please come sit beside your son for a cup of tea

Are you winning son?
Not exactly
The only things l’m winning here is
Good old memories
Like all the good times
You knocked my door
Asking once again if I was winning like before
Though things have changed now
And though it’s sad
It’s time for me to ask are you winning dad?
Even though I know that you are winning dad
When you asked me it meant I was winning dad

Você está ganhando filho?
Sim obrigado pai
E agradeço por vir e me perguntar isso
Eu aprecio você tentar
Me perguntar o que talvez você não entenda

Você está ganhando filho?
Não pai, que vergonha
Acabei de doar três mil dólares
Pra essa garota dizer meu nome
Perdoe-me pelo que fiz
Eu não posso acreditar que você se tornou um simp filho

Você está ganhando filho?
Pai não, eu não ganho, e pai está pesando, muito
3000 horas, joguei este jogo, participei de um torneio hoje
E adivinhe, pai, eu não ganhei pai
Então, tudo que eu fiz, pai, foi por nada, pai
Estou me sentindo muito mal e isso nem é tudo, pai
Eu não ganhei, você vê essa coisa pai
Parou de ser divertido, de ser divertido
Sinto muito que você tenha me visto assim
Eu sou um fracasso, talvez seja hora de parar
Mas obrigado por perguntar, pelo menos eu tentei
Agora me deixe em paz para sentar e chorar

Você está ganhando filho?
Eu transcendi
Além da necessidade de noções dualistas de competitividade
Mas eu estou humilhado pai, você veio até mim
Então, por favor, venha sentar ao lado do seu filho para uma xícara de chá

Você está ganhando filho?
Não exatamente
As únicas coisas que estou ganhando aqui é
Boas velhas memórias
Como todos os bons tempos
Que você bateu na minha porta
Perguntando mais uma vez se eu estava ganhando como antes
Embora as coisas tenham mudado agora
E embora seja triste
É hora de eu perguntar, você está ganhando pai?
Mesmo sabendo que você está ganhando pai
Quando você me perguntou, isso significava que eu estava ganhando pai
