You used to watch me grow
You used to watch me play
You used to watch me laugh
You would smile at me
You would hold me tight when I cried
As I tried to be a strong daddy’s girl

When I cried, you would cry
When I laughed, you would laugh
When I’m sad, you were sad
When I smiled, you smiled
But now you’re gone and I’m stuck all alone
In this cold wind

You’re like a flower gone in the wind
As though I was your little chime
You’re like a bird blown away in the storm
As though I was your call back home
You’re like a tree swaying back and forth
As though I was your shelter in trouble

When you were gone, I would wish
When you were gone, I would hope
When you were gone, I would pray
When you were gone, I would cry
But I know now that you were there
Even when you were gone
