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

    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)

    I think its about her boyfriend who is a drug addict , and comes and goes into her life because she loves him but wants to escape because he's never gonna change, and the chorus "put it in your pocket.. ' i think it about him trying to pass drugs on her telling her that if she took them willingly they could be her "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 cant 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 dont want to loose everything all over again behind him she feels like she can have both when thats 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..
