"Daughter" as written by and David Gates....
Daughter, don't give your love to the first man you see.
Just bide your time so your heart will be free to find the one,
Girl you don't have to run.

Daughter, don't think that love has gone out of style,
Just some folks every once in a while don't understand
How this world was planned.

Now I know you're wondering how
You know when the real thing is comin' your way,
When you live for him and not you
You'll know that it's truly comin' to stay.

Daughter, I know it's hard to make yourself wait,
But when the right man comes it's never too late
So don't you cry ,
He'll be here by and by, and steal your heart away.

    General CommentThe song is relatively straightforward - a father advising his daughter about finding love. A more uptempo Bread song with a great tune.
