A quiet little girl
with an inside broken heart
no one could even think it
that her world had fell apart

She once was daddy's little girl
an honest shining star
but no longer, is she that
it has changed by far

Daddy now hits her
and calls her vile names
she doesn't know what she did
yet hangs her head with shame

The nights at home are torture
for something she hasn't done
why does daddy do this?
she feels like such a shun

The yelling and the screaming
are now ways of life
to help her with this problem
she resorts to the knife

Daddy used to love her
why did things change?
was this the way it was meant to be?
a life of hate and pain

Sometimes daddy's scary
he screams and gets real mad
he always takes it out on me
why is life so bad...

Surely daddy hates me
i do not know why
he used to make me smile
but now he makes me cry

Daddy please forgive me
for whatever i have done
please, stop the on-going hurt
no longer is this fun

Daddy please stop it
this has become too much
the yelling and the hitting
are causing such a fuss

Yesterday you slapped me
right across the face
you threw me down the stairs
i ran, for then you chased

You screamed torturous things to me
said i didn't deserve to live,
after all that you've done to me
i never will forgive

Daddy i am sorry
for perfect i am not
i really did try my best
i gave you all I've got

I think it is time for me
to say my last good-byes
surely it is for the best
let's rid of all these lies

Daddy never loved me,
at least it never showed,
maybe if he acted it
i wouldn't have to go

But know it is far to late
I'm close to being gone
maybe someone will really love me
in the next life, far and beyond.
