Saw her standing there
Tears upon her cheeks told me something was wrong
I asked her what it was
She looked away and said, "My daddy's home"
I knew what that meant
It meant that I can never see you again
I had seen this once before
I didn't wanna deal with it anymore
"Look away", she said
As she turned away from me
And I tried to hold her
Couldn't let her be
Let her be, let her be
I said "Why,
Why do you make me cry"
She said, "I love you so
Look away, I don't wanna know"
I saw her standing there
Tears upon her cheek told me something's wrong
I said, "What baby"
She looked away and said, "My daddy's home"
"Look away", she said
As she turned away
My God, I know I loved her, couldn't let her be
Let her be, let her be
Look away
Look away
She said, "I love you so
Look away"
