Daddy I Still Care

Verse 1
Where did you been? I looked for you last night
I wanna see you again, I prayed for you last night
I miss you so I try to understand,
you're off doing you and i'm not part of the plan

I still love you daddy I still care

Verse 2
I'ld like to know you so I can know you in myself
truly get to know you more than anyone else
cause people say you remind me of him
but him for me ain't there

I still love you daddy I still care

B-Section 1
Can we go to a game
or take a walk in the park
or sit at home and talk

I still love daddy I still care

Verse 3
Will you stop by and play with me for a while
I hold no fault, no blame for you to spy
and with all of your lies, promises not kept
all of the times you left me by myself

B-section 2
Sometimes I get so angry,
wonder why you hate me so?
The coldest nights and the bitter tears
throw it all away if you would hold me dear

I still love you daddy I still care
I still love you daddy I still care
