lyrics

Who gave up on who?
I never gave up on you
who gave up on who?
I never gave up on you

Love and marriage the Sinatra way
not so much a marriage as a man and slave
all that I remember is the shouting and crying
angry words and slamming doors and sisters crying

Daddy
Who gave up on who?
I never gave up on you
who gave up on who?
I never gave up on you

If this ever figures out I guess
all of my inheritance will be this mess
wishing you the worst and hoping for the best
was it everything you wanted
what the preacher blessed?

Yeah, time plays it’s tricks
but time don’t mean nothing
why did you leave us there to cry
how does a father really say goodbye?

Guitar solo

Hello father from your only son
who only knows you from the lies I heard from mum
yeah I got a family
so much more I love
there’s nothing you could show me now I’m more proud of

Daddy
Who gave up on who?
I never gave up on you
who gave up on who?
I never gave up on you
