Lyrics
A father's song (2003)

Hello my dearest
I am your father
look at you now you're such a big girl
You can tie your own shoes on
I don't dare ask your forgiveness
I don't believe I have the right
I regret every day I miss
Of your most precious life
Your mother thought that it would be best
That we both live apart
Oh no baby don't you go blaming yourself
Don't you know it breaks my heart

Sometime and you'll find out soon enough
Life can be awful hard
Don't you ever ever let it get you down
'Cause you can tie your own shoes on
Don't you ever ever let it be said baby
That your daddy don't love you

When I'd see you
You didn't know who I was
If I were to play with you
You didn't know who I was
If I were to make you smile
You didn't know who I was
If I were to lay with you
You didn't know who I was

Hello my dearest
I am your father
Look at you now you're such a big girl
Lo behold you got your daddy's eyes
With so many wrongs I'd like to right
With the liberty of hindsight
I shoulda never ever ever let your momma go
With you in her arms
from that day I was blinded

I took a snapshot on the platform
Your eyes are wide open
When the train pulled up to the station
Your poor momma was crying
I kiss your mother
I give you one last embrace
Then come to grips baby
That you may never need me
Now I find you tie your own shoe lace

When I'd see you
You didn't know who I was
If I were to play with you
You didn't know who I was
If I were to make you smile
You didn't know who I was
I'd tell you that I love you
Whenever I would see you
Come the day that I would ask you
You know daddy loves you
Your eyes fell on something below
And gently you spoke the word

That I know I heard
