Daddy it's completely up to you,
whether or not to listen to me speak.
I realize I hurt you, I cut scars deep.
But I have to get this off my chest,
I need you to be a form of release.
I'm asking you to listen to what I say,
I'm begging you please.
I realize it's probably hard to
forgive me for what I have done.
I realize now that my decision was dumb.
You were right all along,
you already knew the outcome.
I was the stubborn one who thought I knew best.
But you were just being a father,
I had no right to second guess.
You were trying to protect me
and in return I caused you stress.
You weren't trying to run my life,
for me you just wanted the best.
It wasn't right for me to disrespect your position
I wish I could start all over
Press rewind and try it again.
Daddy I'm asking you to acept me again.
Daddy please open your arms and hug me again.
Daddy i'm asking you please, to trust me again.
Daddy I need your guidance, please help me again.
Daddy I want to change, please show me how I can.
Be there by my side, support me again.
More than anything DADDY,
I want you to please,
LOVE ME AGAIN.
