as a child she remembers bits and pieces
but mist of it shes chosen to block out
becasue daddy treated her the right way
he didnt understand
what loving was about

so shes opened her heart
to the whole world
hoping someone will
come and ease the pain
shes on the edge of a fatal decision
and shes drowning
in the middle of the rain

she looking for the love she never had
looking for the lover she missed from
dear old dad
the world is out to get her
and she is left fading away

she starves herself
to meet a certain standard
because the world says
shed got to look so good
her heart is being eaten on the inside
and she'd do anything
to change it if she could

see a fathers love is something
that we all crave
but something that so few of us receive
its funny that so many feel forgotten
when all weve go to do is just believe

she looking for the love she never had
looking for the lover she missed from
dear old dad
the world is out to get her
and she is left fading away

now ever the best dads fail sometimes
being human they can only do so much
if we cant rely on them to be perfect
it must mean that
we were made for holy touch

thats why jesus is
the love weve never had
he is the love and way to dear old dad
he is out to love us
yes he is out to love us
youll never go hungry when you put
your trust in him
he is out to love us, and take us to a
place of peace and rest
