All I have is a vivid image of you
I've wanted to meet you all of my life
You never were around
You never wanted to see me
I've heard all the stories
I've heard all the lies
Or were they?
You never was here to defend yourself
I always did it on my own
You never called
You never "dropped in"
Where were you?
I always waited for a phone call
Or a note in the mail
I thought you loved me
Maybe I was wrong
Because a note isn't enough
A phone call, or :dropping in"--isn't enough!
Can't you see what I want?
I want a father
I DID want you!
