I was just a girl, daddies little girl
I sat in his lap, and I loved him to bits
I was just a child, and I should've known better
I forgave him every time
Every time he hit me
And every time he would yell or swear
But I was just a girl and I should've known.
Forgiveness isn't always an easy thing
But when I was a child it was just too simple
Now that I've grown, I know better than that
I know better than to forgive someone so easily
When they never even apologized
Because it always ends disastrous
That father of mine, he only ever talks about himself
When I'd say something to him
He would make it all about his life
He never cared enough about me to ask how I was
He never cared to learn who I was becoming
Which is why daddies little girl no longer exists
She only exists in my fathers mind
But there's some part of me, that still wants to be that girl
The one who forgives easily
But the thing that my father doesn't know
Is that I'd forgive, if he would just apologize
Because when it all comes down to it, I'm just a girl
