SORRY SOMETHING WAS WRONG WITH THE OTHER POSTING...
This song is about a daughter's point of view on her father's drinking addiction, abuse, and how he acts like he doesn't love her or her mother. She also says she doesn't want to love him, but can't help it.

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 ward
 

You have a hollowed out heart
But it's heavy in your chest
I try 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


Oh
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 try 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
Lie 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
Put the bottle down
For the love of a daughter
For the love of a daughter
