You left so long ago.
She thought, how could this be so?
You need to be here.
I can't stand for you not to be near.
Your little girl is crying out
Her eyes are tired of the tears.
From her secret fears
She cares so much
And misses him so.
So tell me. Why did he have to go?
What's a girl without her dad.
When it's all she ever wishes she had
When will the never-ending tears stop?
Why can't he just come home?
Time goes by so fast
I will grow, and have a family of my own.
Will you see from heaven?
Wish you were here'
You would finally stop the tears.
Of my secret fears.
Such a funny thing she wishes.
You left so long ago.
