Daddy


Staring out the window toward the stars in the sky.
Wandering if you're up there and if you ever hear me cry.
My mind always falls back on that sad November day
Like the tide flooding the shore, in rushes all the pain

Why did you leave us that way?

Daddy can you hear me? I'm calling your name!
I want to see your face again, come take these tears away.
I know many years have passed, but it still hurts the same.
Daddy, I'm calling your name!

I have two kids of my own now.
Can you see their smiles?
Sometimes in my dreams I've watched you play awhile.
I tell them they have an angel that protects them everyday.
but I still can't answer their question..

Why did you leave us that way?

Daddy, can you hear me? I'm calling your name!
I want to see your face again, come take these tears away.
I know many years have passed, but it still hurts the same.
Daddy, I'm calling your name!
