'you've got every right, to a beautiful life'


Seventeen, she doesn't have a clue
She wipes a tear, and looks right at you
You look at me, wrapped in her arms
And wish you could just restart

If you could, you'd take it all back
You wish you could just go back in time
And i know it's not my fault
But can't you love me at all?

Chorus
I'm so sorry I can't be what you wanted
Just wanna be part of your world
I know you wish I was his instead
Guess I never was, your little girl.

It's the first day of elementary school
I look around, but I don't see you
'Daddy's busy', that's what I'm told
Stupid me, I should have known the truth

I was nine when you said you were done
Threw in the towel, didn't think I'd be someone
What do you see when you look at me now?
God, I wish you were proud.

Chorus
I'm so sorry I can't be what you wanted
Just wanna be part of your world
I know you wish I was his instead
Guess I never was, your little girl.

Have no faith in me
Don't care where I'll be
I'll make my mark, you'll see
And it's all because of me

Hope you see you got your second chance
Hold it tight and promise you won't lie
Don't make her cry, or sit up wondering why
I hope you know you've gotta do this right.

I'm so sorry I couldn't be what you wanted
I hope she can be instead
Let her be part of your whole world
And tell her she's your, little girl
Please let her be your little girl
Hold her tight
Make it right

Everyone used to make excuses for my dad, and tell me that he didn't have a dad and that's why he treated me the way he did, but I was and am still upset about how i was shut out from the begining, that's why I wrote this, so that other people can know that it's okay to be mad about it.
