Walked down the sidewalk
Staring at your feet
Wishing my steps were longer
So by your sides I could keep

Hold your hand much bigger
Never wanted mine to grow
So I could always feel perfect
Inside your palms just so

No one loves me just like you do
No one knows me just like you do
No one can compare to way my eyes fit in yours
You'll always be my father
And I'll always be your joy

Laid me on your belly
Nights when mama wasn't home
Lightning made me shiver
And you never let me feel alone

I tried to match your breathing
Beating my little heart against yours
Perfect were the nights we were sleeping
I never want to end what we are

'Cause No one loves me just like you do
And no one knows me just like you do
No one can compare to the way my eyes fit in yours
You'll always be my father
And I'll always be your joy

One day he'll come on bended knee
And ask my love away from thee
And when I give my love to him
You'll always have a place within
One day he'll come on bended knee
And ask my love away from thee
And when I give my love to him
You'll always have a place within

No one loves me just like you do
No one knows me just like you do
No one can compare to the way my eyes fit in yours
You'll always be my father
And I'll always be your joy.

    It's about all how much your father cares about you and knows you and that your father raised you and and will always love you

    I think this song is about the man in a female's life... as a little girl, her father provider and protector, but one day her soulmate will come and ask to take the duty as the provider and her protector... she will give it to him, put him first in her life... but her father still has a place in her heart.
