I wait for the postman to bring me a letter
I wait for the good Lord to make me feel better
And I carry the weight of the world on my shoulders
A family in crisis that only grows older

Why'd you have to go?
Why'd you have to go?
Why'd you have to go?

Daughter to father, daughter to father
I am broken but I am hoping
Daughter to father, daughter to father
I am crying, a part of me is dying and
Cause These are, these are
The confessions of a broken heart

And I wear all your old clothes, the old polo sweater
I dream of another you
The one who would never (never)
Leave me alone to pick up the pieces
A daddy to hold me, that's what I needed

So why'd you have to go?
Why'd you have to go?
Why'd you have to go!

Daughter to father, daughter to father
I don't know you, but I still want to
Daughter to father, daughter to father
Tell me the truth, did you ever love me
Cause these are, these are
The confessions of a broken heart

I love you,
I love you
I love you
I... !
I love you!

Daughter to father, daughter to father
I don't know you, but I still want to
Daughter to father, daughter to father
Tell me the truth...
Did you ever love me!
Did you ever love me?
These are...
The confessions... of a broken heart

Ohhh... yeah

I wait for the postman to bring me a letter...

    I think it's her best song and most meaningful one too. I mean I can't relate because I have a daddy who loves me and promises to always be with me. Well that's my daddy on earth and God. It makes me sad to think about people whose dad left them and they don't realize that God's their daddy too.
