He can't remember
The times that he thought
Does my daddy love me?
Probably not
That didn't stop him
From wishing that he did
Didn't keep him from wanting
Or worshiping him

He guesses he saw him
About once a year
He could still feel the way he felt
Standing in tears
Stretching his arms out
As far as they'd go
Whispering daddy
I want you to know

[Chorus:]
I love you this much
And I'm waiting on you
To make up your mind
Do you love me too?
How ever long it takes
I'm never giving up no matter what
I love you this much

He grew to hate him for what he had done
'Cause what kind of father
Could do that to his son?
He said 'damn you daddy'
The day that he died
The man didn't blink
But the little boy cried

[Chorus:]
I love you this much
And I'm waiting on you
To make up your mind
Do you love me too?
How ever long it takes
I'm never giving up no matter what
I love you this much

Half way through the service
While the choir sang a hymn
He looked up above the preacher
And he sat and stared at him

He said
'Forgive me father'
When he realized
That he hadn't been unloved
Or alone all his life
His arms were stretched out
As far as they'd go
Nailed to the cross
For the whole world to know

[Chorus:]
I love you this much
And I'm waiting on you
To make up your mind
Do you love me too?
How ever long it takes
I'm never giving up no matter what
I love you this much

    Even though it's an oldie, this a great song. It's about a boy whose dad left him and never really cared about him. He tried to let his dad know he loved him, but the dad just walked away. When the boy got older, his heart grew cold and he began to hate his dad. He eventually realizes that even though his dad never loved him, his Father always did.

    When the boy was young he loved his dad a lot but his dad didn't care about him or care that he loved him. Then his dad died and the boys heart was cold towards his dad and didn't care that he died. But when he saw jesus on the cross with his arms stretched out he realized that he hadn't gone unloved his whole life. His dad might not have cared but jesus always loved him and always would.
