FTH ~ Fourteen YearsMature

Fourteen Years

 

Fourteen years is a long way away

And if I had the choice to stay, I’d stay

But now I’ll live my life day by day

Oh fourteen years, go quick; I pray, I pray

 

He did all that he could

And for months and months he fought for me

He tried so hard to keep his place our home

But our future together, the judge didn’t see

And I can’t possibly know how much he hurts

See, I’ve only just turned two

But be strong Daddy, ‘cause in fourteen years

I’ll come back home to you

 

Now fourteen years is a long way away

And if I had the choice to stay, I’d stay

But now I’ll live my life day by day

Oh fourteen years, go quick; I pray, I pray

 

Now all those things Daddy’s take for granted

He’ll never be able to take for good

But I know he’d share his whole life with me

If only the judge had said he could

For a part-time Daddy he never wanted to be

It was one of his worst fears

But don’t cry Daddy, please dry your tears

I’ll be back home in fourteen years

 

Oh fourteen years is such a long way away

And if I had the choice to stay, I’d stay

But now I’ll live my life day by day

Oh fourteen years go quick; I pray, I pray

The End
