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

    The song is about an addiction relapse. Daddy is the drug being given to the girl struggling against an addiction relapse. It's being given to her by an enabler or dealer.

    Hmm habits you cant drop but then when i thought about it i said could it be drugs? So you see girls being filled with what you used to have and now you feel like you need it again. It could be any habit just i thought it was a personification for drug addiction.. I could be wrong but thats what it made me think of

    Its someone who hurt you. Someone who hurt you a lot, and now he is in back in your life and you can't get over him. He's everywhere.. And what it is a reminder that he hurt you. It can be your "daddy" as in the man in your life who is looking after you. (daughters marry their fathers)
