Daddy when I was little you drank every night
Lanie would cry with fright
I saw my face in the mirror and wondered how,
I had been so happy were am I now

I'm sorry I wasn't a boy,Daddy I tried
I'm sorry I don't like sports,Daddy I tried
I'm sorry that I don't like Della, Daddy I tried
I'm sorry our conversations always left a bitter taste in your mouth
and a throbbing in my head

Wait what am I saying
I shouldn't be apologizing
you should be saying baby at least you tried
If you had the decency you would

You say I've never loved you but Daddy,at least i tried
