I remember the days of new
When my little girl marveled at the dew
When story time was the high in her world
She was my little angel and daddy's little girl

As she grew older and started to blossom
Her social life grew and her grades hit bottom
I wanted to say something but not interfere
It was her life I could just hold her dear

Money was missing lies were being told
She was selling her body and only fifteen years old
She needed the money but couldn't come to me
I covered my ears I was too blind to see

I kissed her and held her all my attention I paid
To half of her nights and all of her days
How did she get started where did she find time
Was she the victim or committing the crime

Not my daughter I would continually say
I denied the time and disputed the day
Oh Momma puleeze she said over and over again
So I looked the other way I committed the sin

I can't make this right there are no do agains
My daughter is dead in this world can we win
The new days are gone we're into the old
We have to reach more than the body
We have to reach the soul
