For Daddy's Girls


Recommended Posts

My Dad loved John Denver and always had him playing in the car when going for drives. I've always been a fan aswell and have recently been playing some of his music in my car. One particular song struck me one day as I was driving longing for Dad,wishing things were different.....I suddenly took notice and actually hear the words....although I knew the song well, I never actually paid much attention to the words. Now when it comes on, I listen so closely to every single word and wonder.....

Although I believe the song was written for John D's wife/ex wife I somehow associate it with Dad now and hope our time is not all gone.

Here are the words .....

Lady, are you crying

Do the tears belong to me

Did you think our time together was all gone

Lady, you've been dreaming

I'm as close as I can be

And I swear to you our time has just begun

Close your eyes and rest your weary mind

I promise I will stay right here beside you

Today our lives were joined, became entwined

I wish that you could know how much I love you

Lady, are you happy

Do you feel the way I do

Are there meanings that you've never seen before

Lady, my sweet lady

I just can't believe it's true

It's like I've never ever loved before

Close your eyes and rest your weary mind

I promise I will stay right here beside you

Today our lives were joined, became entwined

I wish that you could know how much I love you

Lady are you crying

Do the tears belong to me

Did you think our time together was all gone

Lady, you've been dreaming

I'm as close as I can be

And I swear to you our time has just begun

I hope all our Daddies are right beside us as we try to walk this lonely road.....

Dear Niamh,

Thank you so much for sharing. The lyrics made me think, and hearing the song itself...oh, I was crying my eyes out! My tears definitely belong to my dear dad. At the same time, what a sweet song, I really appreciate hearing it. I really think that the sentiments expressed in that song fit my dad to a tee. I shall try to take this song to heart and feel his presence and love still with me...

take care,

Chai

sure Marty, I've just tried adding it there although I don't see it appearing yet so I'm assuming you need to accept it or something.

thank you
