Daddy's Little Girl:

 

 

Daddy

must miss his little angel.

But now she's got another

who gives her the sugar,

just a little candy

where dandelions grow,

up through the cracks

in front of the door

that he and the wife

don't open anymore.

 

Daddy

don't express himself too good

but he knows there's no doubt

it's his fault she ran out,

and he never should have

but something inside him

snapped in that room

behind the door

that he and the wife

don't open anymore.

 

Daddy

got to see her again

for the first time in years.

Open bedroom window,

looking pale and cold.

She went straight to bed,

and with a scarlet hand

had painted his name

on the back of the door

that he and the wife

don't open anymore.
