It's the way he looks at you
That says to me
This isn't over
From the outside looking in
You see there's nothing sacred here
Nothing sacred
You can bend
But you can't break
For the reasons out of our control
You try to make it roll
Like a dice away
But you say that you're all empowered here
This is obviously not clear enough
To meYou can bend
But you can't break
Hey little girl keep dancing
Hey little girl keep dancing alone
'Cause there's not enough time in your day
To keep you here
The soldier's daughter
Did your daddy
Did your daddy hurt you
Did he make you feel bad
Did he poison your views
With the water he was raised on
Oh you father's son says hang on
Hang on
Hey little girl
Keep dancing
Hay little girl
Keep dancing alone
'Cause there's not enough time in your life
To stay here
So over the hills he'd climb
Just to see her there in time
Just to watch the sun shine through her dress
The sweet soldier's daughter
The sweet soldier's daughter

    General CommentGot to agree with pretty much everything said here... a strained father/daughter relationship... Not quite sure I agree with the sexual abuse idea. I think the song title "soldiers daughter" suggests an overbearing father.

    As for the last part...

    "So over the hills he'd climb
    Just to see her there in time
    Just to watch the sun shine through her dress"

    Looks like after all is said and done, the daughter has written off her father, only after his realization that he made mistakes in the past and wishes to repent.
