Daddy, will you ever come home?
Will I ever know you?
Will I ever show you?

That you made me who I am today and
still I wait by the door,
for you to come and tell me more.

There were tears there,
curtains hiding the pain I bear.
Oh, yeah I cry,
But I won’t let him see me cry.

Daddy, will you ever know me?
Will you ever love me?
Guess I’ll never know ya,
But I’d love to show ya,

About that little girl who was your new baby,
the one you wouldn’t leave behind,
the one you went and left behind.

Well she grew up,
without any father,
with a failing mother,
no one left to love her.

Daddy, oh why?
Why won’t you just let me cry?
Oh why?

Yeah I love him,
I don't even know him
Do you even love me?
Well I'd never even know it
Cause you never showed it

Do you even love me?
Well I'd never know it,
Cause you never even showed it.

Daddy, do you even care?
Will you ever be there?
Will you ever be there....

For that little girl,
Who still believed you loved her,
though you never knew her,
You still have to love her, right?

Daddy, will you ever come home?
Will you ever know me
like you knew that baby girl.

They locked you
took the key away from me,
they said you were not good for me,
but I know you better than that.
Don’t I?
Oh daddy, well don’t I?
Don’t I know you better than them?
Or was that all just a big fat lie?
Daddy, you can’t even tell me,
What I should be feeling,
What should I be feeling?

Yeah you left me,
but somehow still you love me.
Why’d you go and leave me,
If you truly loved me?

Forever and forever ever,
I would think of you as,
the man who loved me so much
and never got to hold my hand,
my tiny little baby hand.

Now that I’m a little more grown up,
I know that you won’t show up,
And never ever will show up.

Daddy, I will always love you,
I hope this song will show you
that I really love you.

They don’t understand
that you’re still my daddy,
and how much you mean to me.

I will always show it,
but I hope you know it.

Oh I hope you know it.
I ho-hope you know it.
Daddy I still love you.
