Lyrics

Daddy’s Girl
Copyright Anderson-Gram 1995

Daddy's girl grew up too fast
Daddy tried to make it last
He wrapped a lasso around the past
Made of Love misunderstood

But the tethered heart would never stand
Oh the presence of that guiding hand
If the silence wouldn't change the span
Then the miles finally would

Sara's coming home today
Red eye non-stop from LA
Just to say goodbye one last time
All those things they couldn't say
All the time that they let slip away
Last time they met she was wearing white
Daddy's girl is home again tonight

Mama played the go-between
As a woman claimed the childhood fantasy
You know she asked for you specifically
Oh least just say hello

Sara's got her mama's eyes
Her dad smile and his foolish pride
Now there’s just a bill of polite goodbyes
All those things they couldn't say
All the time they let slip away
Last time they met she was wearing white
Daddy's girl is home again tonight

She wiped the tears from her mama's eyes
All the time her own stayed dry
She said I'm sorry it's too hard to cry
For a man I never knew

Sara's coming home today
It's 68 and clear in LA
We should be landing right on time
All those things they couldn't say
All the time that they let slip away
Maybe they were just too much alike
Daddy's girl is home again tonight
Daddy's girl is home again tonight
