The bottle took you from me when I was a child
Robbed me of the love I needed, robbed me of a smile
I prayed the same prayer every night, especially for you
After all, that's what little girls do.

It didn't happen in an instant, it happened in God's time
You've finally gotten sober and found some peace of mind
Yeah you faced all your demons and they finally set you free
With your back to the bottle, you're finally facing me

And Dad I wanna tell you that, I'm proud of you for never giving up... on
Us
Even in your darkest hour I could still feel the power of your love... for
Us
And I know that we'll make up for lost time as we walk through this world
I love you Daddy, always your baby girl...
