Dear Daddy

"Dear Daddy"
Dan Grigor

Here’s what I should have said to you
Even though it’s much too late
It’s what I should have said but didn’t
I was blinded by false hate
Everybody missed you,
when you ran away
And I understand now,
why you couldn’t stay


It’s all right, it’s all right, it’s all right

Then when I saw you,
after all those years
You said my hair’s too long
and you kissed my ears
I tried to call you Daddy
but it had been too long
The words sound so strange now
that you’re forever gone

It’s all right, it’s all right, it’s all right


And now it’s my turn
I’m gonna be a Dad
That would have made you Grandpa
and I wonder what you would have said
Would you’ve been happy
would you’ve been sad
Would it have brought back
bad memories you had


You tried to pacify us
with all your dreams
You had some good ones
some of the best I’ve seen
It’s all right, it’s all right, it’s all right

So rest easy Daddy
you’ve been through a lot
Now all that’s left are
the memories we’ve got


It’s all right, it’s all right, it’s all right
