"there's a darkness upon me that's flooded in light, and i'm frightened by those that don't see it" ~the avett brothers, head full of doubt


I saw a little girl today
Buying ice cream from a truck
Then her dad walked up,paid the man
Then walked away
She ran after him,big smile on her face
And it brought me back to the day
When my own dad did the same
*Chorus*
*Daddy come back to me
Come back to your little girl
Come be the man that I always needed
Daddy come back to me
Look at how I've grown
Come be that man that I always wanted*
I talked to you today
And for the first time I didn't cry
I still feel broken inside
But what you said wasn't full of lies
Momma tells me to be careful
Because she knows what you can do
But I don't care
I just wanna get close to you
*Chorus*
I hugged you today
For the first time in years
And I think I might actually be healing
You say you miss me, and wanna see me more
And I know you're different than you were before
So this is me opening my heart
As tears gather in my eyes
I'm finally ready to let your love come in
Daddy came back to me
Came back just in time
He's trying to be the man that I always needed
Daddy came back to me
Now I'm almost grown
He's being the man that I always wanted

I really like the song!  I'm glad he has changed somewhat.  I hope things get better and better.  Just keep on writing it helps even when it does seem like it would. :)

Did he really come back or is it just a song?
