We spent so much time
Misunderstanding each other
Now it breaks my heart
To know you're gone forever.

Can you hear me daddy
Up there in your new home?
Please know how much I miss you
Since you've been gone.

If a guardian angel, I could choose
I'd ask God to let it be you
I told you daddy, how much I care
But it was too late, you weren't really there.

I love you daddy, I'll never forget
How hard you worked for me and yet
I waited so long to tell you I care
I just hope you can hear me up there.

When all my races have been run
And my life here on earth is done
And if by chance a crown I've won
I'll meet you daddy beyond the sun.
