"Unforgiven" as written by and Levine/dobson....
Daddy daddy
Why you break your promises to me
Daddy daddy
Don't you know you hurt me constantly

And there's something I think you should know
I'm not the little girl you left waiting at home
All the hurt and pain you left with mom and me
Why can't I be angry
I hope you're somewhere out there listening to this song
I hope you're thinking what you did was wrong
Well let me make it crystal clear for you to see
It's too late for I'm sorry

Sorry is a word you like to say
But sorry won't erase the things you did yesterday

And I want you to know that I didn't need you anyway
And this rope that we walk on is swaying
And the ties that bind us will never ever fray
But I want for you to know
You are
You are
Unforgiven
Unforgiven

Daddy daddy
Fan of absolute simplicity
Daddy daddy
Expert in responsibility

Where were you when I fell down and skinned my knee
Where were you when I was scared to go to sleep
Where were you to soothe my insecurities
Why can't I be angry

Where were you the first time someone broke my heart
Where were you when I first learned to drive a car
Where were you when I plugged in my first guitar
It's too late for I'm sorry

And I want you to know that I didn't need you anyway
And this rope that we walk on is swaying
And the ties that bind us will never ever fray
But I want for you to know
You are
You are
Unforgiven
Unforgiven

Sorry is a word you like to say
But sorry won't erase the things you did yesterday

And I want you to know that I didn't need you anyway
And this rope that we walk on is swaying
And the ties that bind us will never ever fray
But I want for you to know
You are
You are
Unforgiven
Unforgiven
Unforgiven
Unforgiven
Unforgiven

    General CommentAnd there's something I think you should know
    I'm not the little girl you left waiting at home
    All the hurt and pain you left with mom and me
    Why can't I be angry
    I hope you're somewhere out there listening to this song
    I hope you're thinking what you did was wrong
    Well let me make it crystal clear for you to see
    It's too late for I'm sorry

    i think that's pretty self explanatory

    General CommentI can relate to this because my dad was never there for me. So when I first heard this song it brought me to tears. Because I felt the rawness of the song.

    It still makes me cry every time.
