Emeli Sande – Daddy lyrics

He's out your system yeah it took you a while
You got your family back and you got your smile
And you promised your sister that you'd never go back again

But friends keep telling you what he did last night
How many girls he kissed how many he liked
And you try to remember that there's no way you could ever be friends

But now you're
You're looking like you really like him like him
And now you're feeling like you miss him miss him
You're speaking like you really love him love him
And now you're dancing like you need him need him

[Chorus:]
Put it in your pocket don't tell anyone I gave ya
It can be the one you run to the one that saves ya
It can be your daddy daddy if you take it gladly gladly
Yeah
Daddy Daddy

He kissed you on the lips and opened your eyes
You had to catch your breath got such a surprise
And you always forgot how it feels to live in his lies

He pulled you closer said he'll never let go
You couldn't trust him but you never said no
In that moment he made you forget how it feels when he's gone

But now you're
You're looking like you really like him like him
And now you're feeling like you miss him miss him
You're speaking like you really love him love him
And now you're dancing like you need him need him

[Chorus:]
Put it in your pocket don't tell anyone I gave ya
It can be the one you run to the one that saves ya
It can be your daddy daddy if you take it gladly gladly
Yeah
Daddy Daddy

You're looking like you really like him like him
(I can kinda like him)
And now you're feeling like you miss him miss him
(I kinda miss him)
You're looking like you really love him love him
(And now you love him)
And now you're dancing like you need him need him
(Need him)

[Chorus:] x2
Put it in your pocket don't tell anyone I gave ya
It can be the one you run to the one that saves ya
It can be your daddy daddy if you take it gladly gladly
Yeah
Daddy Daddy

    Really shes stuck on her ex and when the chorus says it can be your daddy that means hes in control of her mind and she all she knows when she lonely its making him the drug she addicted to once you start you can't stop going back and but when you are on drugs your miserable after your one moment of happiness when its entering your system but it makes you loose everything around you and once you rehabilitate you gain your life back slowly but its always temptations that make you want to go back. So in this song she went back to him secretely but she not going to tell nobody cause she don't want to loose everything all over again behind him she feels like she can have both when that's not possible at the end of the day.

    It's interesting reading the different meanings about this lyrics. My thought is that it could also be the words from a new love. A person afreid of loosing the other one for someone in the past; "put it in your pocket.. It could be the ond you run to, the one that saves you" -> good memories. It could also be words from a sister or someone else caring about the suffering one, but in my opinion there is somekind of bitternes between the lines allway through the lyrics. Witch make me think it's love.

    It's about a girl who was on addicted to a guy who was bad for her, who would lie, so she broke up with him and promised everyone that she'd stay away from him.
    But deep down she still has feelings for him, so when she hears news of him with other girls, she feels sad and lonely.
    A friend, the singer gives her something that's that can be of comfort, but might not be legal possibly drugs.
    When she says "it can be your daddy" she doesn't mean literally, she means it same spirit the phrase "who's your daddy? " that's said by people when they feel they've accomplished something great. In this context if something can be your daddy it's something that provides a lot for you. A comfort of some kind.

    This song is not about a guy, its about drugs. The person became clean but the temptation is always there for the drugs from her friends telling her about it. She's promised her sister that she will stay clean. But the drug is like her daddy in the sense that it saves her just like your dad is supposed to be your saviour.
    Read the line 'put it in your pocket don't tell anyone I gave ya' it says it all. With emeli sandees lyrics its never what it seems, you have to read between the lines and everyday isssues like depression, drugs etc are buried deep.
