Daddy When You Coming Home

by Brett Matthew West

Daddy When You Coming Home

(SON): You said you'd never leave me, well, here I am alone
The only time I hear from you is when you call me on the phone
I know that they all need you, but, where does that leave me
Daddy, when you coming home to spend some time with me

(DADDY): And, then, you said...

(SON): Is there somehow something I somehow didn't do

(Daddy) It broke my heart to hear these words tonight I heard from you
No matter where I'm going, how can I make you see
there's nothing in this world Son
that could keep your love from me

(SON): Every time I need you I know that you'll be gone
Still, I gotta find a way to somehow carry on
Living life without you ain't no easy thing to do
Daddy, I remember the days of me and you
All I'm asking of you is for you to come back home
Much too late I understand what I've known all along
How can I make it Daddy in this world with you gone
Daddy you're the reason I have for holding on

(SON): Mommy sits here crying and I don't know what to do
She said she heard someone say you found somebody new
Is she there to hold you when you come home at night
Daddy what was it that you said two wrongs don't make it right

(SON): So, come tell me your story when you put me in to bed
You know I hold on tight to every word you said
Did you find your new love to be all that she can be
Well, don't worry 'bout me Daddy you already set me free

(DADDY): And, then, you said...

(SON): Is there somehow something I somehow didn't do

(DADDY): It broke my heart to hear these words tonight I heard from you
No matter where I'm going, how can I make you see
there's nothing in this world Son
that could keep your love from me

(SON): Every time I need you I know that you'll be gone.
Still, I gotta find a way to somehow carry on.
Living life without you ain't no easy thing to do.
Daddy I remember the days of me and you.
All I'm asking of you is for you to come back home.
Much too late I understand what I've known all along.
How can I make it Daddy in this world with you gone?
Daddy you're the reason I have for holding on.

(SON): You said you'd never leave me, well, here I am alone.
The only time I hear from you is when you call me on the phone.
I know that they all need you, but, where does that leave me?
Daddy when you coming home to spend some time with me?

(SON): Is there somehow something I somehow didn't do?
