For the love

I cannot believe that Demi L went through a similar situation. It makes me feel like my story isn’t as uncommon as I used to believe it was. If you have a minute, you should really listen to her new song “For the Love of a daughter” the lyrics are really touching and you can almost feel the pain behind the words.

Fathers don’t realize the impact that they have on their children’s lives, whether or not they choose to be a part of it.

“Four years old with my back to the door
All I could hear was the family war
You’re selfish and always expecting more
Am I your child or just a charity award

You have a hallowed out heart
But it’s heavy in your chest
I try so hard to fight it
But it’s hopeless
Hopeless
You’re hopeless

Oh father
Please father
I’d love to leave you alone
But I can’t let you go
Oh father
Please father
Put the bottle down
For the love of a daughter
Oh

It’s been five years
Since we’ve spoken last
And you can’t take back
What we never had

Well I can be manipulated
Only so many times
Before even I love you
Starts to sound like a lie

You have a hallowed out heart
But it’s heavy in your chest
I try so hard to fight it

But it’s hopeless
Hopeless
You’re hopeless

Oh father
Please father
I’d love to leave you alone
But I can’t let you go
Oh father
Please father
Put the bottle down
For the love of a daughter

Don’t you remember
I’m your baby girl
How could you push me out of your world
Lie to your flesh and your blood
Put your hands on the ones that you swore you loved

Don’t you remember
I’m your baby girl
How could you throw me right out of your world
So young when the pain had begun
Now forever afraid of being alone

Oh father
Please father
I’d love to leave you alone
But I can’t let you go
Oh father
Oh father
Please father
Put the bottle down
For the love of a daughter
For the love of a daughter”
