"In Pictures" as written by Joseph A. Doyle and Robert E. Boyd....
I've got her photograph on a stand by my bed
Two on the mantle and thousands in my head
I can't believe how fast she's growing
It ain't supposed to be like this
Everytime I look at her, I see how much I missed.

I missed her first steps
Her first words
And “I love you daddy” is something I seldom heard.
Oh it hurts me so…
To watch my girl grow…
Up in Pictures

I sent the money down
Do my best to do my part
But it can't compare to what I paid with my heart
There's still one answered question
That weighs heavy on my mind
Will she ever understand, the reasons why?

I missed her first steps
Her first words
And I love you daddy something I seldom heard
Oh it hurts me so, to watch my girl grow
Up in pictures

Takes all I have to keep the tears inside.
And What I wouldn't give if I could turn back time.

I missed her first steps
Her first words
And “ I love you daddy” is something I seldom heard
Oh it hurts me so, to watch my baby grow
Up in pictures

    General CommentSad song about a father missing out on his daughter's formative years. I wonder if he is supposed to be in prison.
