|Country||a song about a girl orphaned by the child custody industry.||sad, father daughter relationship, tea parties, manipulated memories, child custody, divorce||
She poured tea for daddy Daddy poured for dolly While dolly sat and smiled in her chair She remembered all the laughin' And the fun that they were having, But she must not have been there Cause she remembers all that she can But memories fade and disappear Cause her mama made it clear That her daddy was a dangerous man There were story books on a teddy bear lap Loving looks and the teddy bear wrapped His arms around her A sweet caress to snuggle in He pulled her blankie to her chin And drew the moonlight in to surround her She remembers all that she can But love can fade and disappear Cause her gramma made it clear That her daddy was a dangerous man (Instrumental) Driving home, they giggled so playing with the radio While she tried to match his baritone But his truck stopped pulling up one day And daddy's voice just went away Although she waited days beside the phone She remembers all that she can But papa fades and disappears Cause the judge had made it clear That her daddy was a dangerous man (Instrumental) She met him on the street. She'd just turned 22 that day Her heart was a question mark. He couldn't find a word to say. She thought she recognized a look, familiar, like a favorite book Just as she turned to walk away She remembers all that she can But memories fade and disappear Cause they'd all made it clear That her daddy was a dangerous man Yes her daddy was a dangerous man

This is the only song on the album that's not 'fun'. This is my first shot at a country sound and it's dedicated to all the kids that have lost their fathers to the child custody industry. Think about these kids when you get a chance. (Yes, this song is personal.)
