daddy lyrics – dana glover

he was gone before you could walk
gone and left your mom alone
just as you were learning to talk
so you grew up real fast
and she changed her name
the one why you lost your place
was the new baby’s game

well i’m sorry
that you never knew your daddy
that you never felt the love
that every little boy is dreaming of
yeah i’m sorry
that you never knew your daddy
cause now your all grown up
with such a price to pay, yeah

well the years have come gone
and here i am
for the life of me i could try and try
but never understand
now everything can change or stay the same
cause we can live and learn, but in return
the pattern still remains

well i’m sorry
that i never knew your daddy
that i never felt the love
that every little girl is dreaming of
yeah i’m sorry
that i never knew your daddy
cause now i’m all grown up
with such a price to pay

maybe someday you will understand
why we had to go
i believe there is redemption
and in time we’ll know
why

well i’m sorry
that you never knew your daddy
that you never felt the love
that every little boy is dreaming of
yeah i’m sorry
that you never knew your daddy
cause now i’m all grown up
with such a price to pay, yeah yeah
