Little Girl


LITTLE GIRL (Pettigrew)

The dust is piled high on the story of his life
But a little gust of wind will begin to shed some light
His daughter came from Rhode Island after she got the call
But as she sits in this quiet room, she wonders why she came at all

‘CAUSE HE NEVER EVEN SAID I LOVE YOU
HE NEVER EVEN SAID GOODYE
HE NEVER COUNTED ALL THE TEARS THAT SHE CRIED
HE NEVER THOUGHT TO THINK ABOUT HER
WHILE HE WAS WRAPPED UP IN HER WORLD
NOW HE’S LOST HIS LITTLE GIRL

The doctor said he’s older now he hasn’t been himself
She felt a tear crawl down her cheek when she said she couldn’t tell
The memory of her mother says that love should be blind
She can’t explain why she feels this way, he doesn’t deserve her time

‘CAUSE HE NEVER EVEN SAID I LOVE YOU
HE NEVER EVEN SAID GOODYE
HE NEVER COUNTED ALL THE TEARS THAT SHE CRIED
HE NEVER THOUGHT TO THINK ABOUT HER
WHILE HE WAS WRAPPED UP IN HER WORLD
NOW HE’S LOST HIS LITTLE GIRL

She didn’t make it to the funeral that night
She’s given up on understanding, she just wants to leave it all behind

She’s wandering through the halls, still wondering why she came
Picture perfect memories hang, trapped in their frames
She walks into her parents room and there by the bed
A letter from her father, and through her tears she read

NOW I’M SAYING THAT I LOVE YOU
I NEVER MEANT TO MAKE YOU CRY
THIS IS NOT THE WAY I WANT TO SAY GOODBYE
YOU CAN HEAR ME SAY I’M SORRY
WHEN THE SUN SHINES ON YOUR WORLD
ARE YOU STILL MY LITTLE GIRL?
ARE YOU STILL MY LITTLE GIRL?
