Daddy, I’m sorry that you hate me
Don’t tell me otherwise because I know that you do
I’m sorry that I can’t be the daughter you want me to be
Nothing I do will ever be good enough for you

You’re not interested in my life and you clearly don’t want to be
You don’t care whether I’m home at midnight
Lately, you don’t even notice me
We were best friends and now the only thing we do is fight

Daddy, why don’t you love me?
I thought you were the one person who would always be there
I need you although you think I’m silly
I guess you were right, life really is unfair

Maybe I should go away, will you miss me then?
Maybe I should just give up and die
Maybe I should drink, do drugs and sleep with hundreds of men
I could even steal and lie. Hopefully you’ll notice me then

Daddy, I know that you never wanted me in the first place
But it is not my fault that I was born, it really is not
I’m sorry that you think I’m such a disgrace
I do love you and I hope that is one thing you haven’t forgot
