I've got her photograph on a stand by my bed
Two on the mantle and thousands in my head
I can't believe how fast she's growing
It ain't supposed to be like this
Everytime I look at her I see how much I've missed

I missed her first steps her first words and "I love you Daddy"
Is something I've seldom heard
Oh it hurts me so to watch my girl grow up in pictures

I send the money down do my best to do my part
But it can't compare to what I pay with my heart
There's still one unanswered question that weighs heavy on my mind
Will she ever understand the reasons why

I missed her first steps and her first words and "I love you Daddy"
Is something I've seldom heard
Oh it hurts me so to watch my girl grow up in pictures

It takes all I have to keep the tears inside
And what I wouldn't give if I could turn back time

I missed her first steps her first words and "I love you Daddy"
Is something I've seldom heard
Oh it hurts me so to watch my baby grow up in pictures
