For the love of a daughter

Text písně For the love of a daughter

Four years old with my back to the door
All I could hear was the family war
Your selfish hands always expecting more
Am I your child or just a charity award?


You have a hollowed out heart
But it's heavy in your chest
I´ve tried 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


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


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


You have a hollowed out heart
But it's heavy in your chest
I´ve tried 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
Lied 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 loved


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