She has a heart broken
She was her dad's girl
with her childhood stolen
Her eyes are beautiful and they've seen a lot
Her eyes are beautiful and they've seen a lot

She's got a lot of memories
about a lot of things
a lot of stories
She wanted to tell you but she couldn't do
She wanted to tell you but she couldn't do

She grew up so quickly
much faster than her friends
She says: my dad's so nice to me,
Look what he gave me for my birthday
Look what he gave me for my birthday

She doesn't know the meaning of the words hold me tight, kiss me sweetheart
kiss me goodnight, kiss me baby

She hears the sound from the tv
the tv gets turned off
Her mum goes to bed early
And her dad is knocking on the bedroom door
And her dad is knocking on the bedroom door

It wouldn't be good for him if someone knew
It wouldn't be good for him if someone knew

Her eyes are beautiful and they've seen a lot
Her eyes are beautiful and they've seen a lot

    General CommentAlthough this song clearly to me is about a father molesting his daughter, it's a really good song, and I like it. The whole feeling of the song, if one leaves out the molesting part, reminds me of me, and -my dad-. When you grow up with an alcoholic dad you certaintly have seen a lot, and have to grow up a lot faster than everyone else. Even though my mom divorced him when I was a small kid, I've still had contact with him and visited him frequently, cause he's a periodic drinker, and so he has his "normal" periods, but it really tares you apart..lies, disappointments, worries.. oh well.. a bit off topic maybe;)
