What My Daddy Tells Me


She said, I felt so shy when you walked in
when everyone else looked and laughed at me.
I only was myself like I've always been..
but, the don't like the simple, dreamer.. me!

Caught my breath.. hid my tears
one more step.. someday, I'll get over my fears

but, for now I'll just keep running fast as I can
don't turn around and take every little chance
always remember to use your pretty mind..
and don't you ever let them put you down!

Oh, dreaming about the day I see him so proud of me..
and that's what my daddy tells me.

finally, I got home.. I ran to my room,
and fell asleep in an ocean of tears..
tried to dry my pillow, so my mom won't worry
and closed my eyes to lose myself in dreams

Catch my breath.. hide my tears
one more step.. and I'll get over my fears

but, they are always there to watch you leave..

So, for now I'll just keep running fast as I can
don't turn around and take every little chance
always remember to use your pretty mind..
and don't you ever let them put you down!

Oh, dreaming about the day I see him so proud of me..
and that's what my daddy tells me.

Open your little eyes.. he said
it's a beautiful morning light.. so, don't be sad!
Smile my princess.. Here's your dad
and if you wonder.. yeah, it's okay to be scared.

Take a deep breath.. let your little tears fall,
one more step.. and you'll get over of your fears all.

let's run together fast as we can
don't turn around.. take my hand
and what about using your pretty mind?
trust me, no one's going to put you down!

Oh, I can see it in his eyes.. and I hope my daddy's proud
and if you expect me to leave.. I'll tell you what my daddy tells me.

and that's what my daddy tells me. :)

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
