Daddy\'s Gone

Day in and day out I pretend

that when you left it was the end

of hurt feelings and your lies

Wipe the pain from my eyes


You never were my Daddy

You didn\'t even try to be

No matter how old I get

Your words and deeds I can\'t forget


There were always things that were

more important, like drinking, for sure

So I thought the pain of you wouldn\'t last

When you moved away and became my past


Though my future is full of positivity,

I can\'t help but look back and ask what\'s wrong with me

Everything that dad said is so, so wrong

My love, my life, proves that I am strong.
