He wasn't there
When I needed him
No
He was never around
His reputation
Was preceding him
And he was out
On the town
It didn't matter
If he let me down
I didn't care
About the lies
Now all I knew
Was that
He loved me
Very much
He was my hero
In disguise

I'm so pleased
I never gave up
On him
Oh well
You wouldn't believe
Some of the things
That he did
And everyone
Said you
Have to give him
Some time
And I'm glad
That I gave it
To him
Cause now
Everything's fine

Now you see
I never thought
You'd be
A constant person
In my life
And I don't think
That you would be
If you'd
Save stayed
With your ex wife
I know you
Wouldn't but
There is no need
No need
To apologise
Because I know
You'll always
Love me
Very much
You are my hero
In disguise

I'm so pleased
I never gave up
On him
Oh
Well
You wouldn't believe
Some of the things
That he did
And everyone said you
Have to give him
Some time
And I'm glad
That I gave it to him
Cause now
Everything's fine

You might have
Thought you
Didn't teach me much
But you
Taught me
Right from wrong
And it was
When you didn't keep
In touch
Well it taught me
To be strong
And just in case
You ever thought
I would
I wouldn't change you
For the world
Because I know
You'll always
Love me
Very much
I'll always be
You're little girl

I'm so pleased
I never gave up
On him
Oh
Well you
Wouldn't believe
Some of the things
That he did
And everyone
Said you
Have to give him
Some time
And I'm glad
That I gave it
To him
Cause now
Everything's fine
