I Love You This Much



He can't remember the times that he thoughtDoes my daddy love me?Probably notBut that didn't stop him from wishing that he didDidn't keep from wanting or worshiping him
He guesses he saw him about once a yearHe could still feel the way he feltStanding in tearsStretching his arms out as far as they'd goWispering daddy, I wan't you to know
ChorusI love you this much and I'm waiting on youTo make up your mind, do you love me to?However long it takesI'm never giving upNo matter what, I love you this much
He grew to hate him for what he had done'Cause what kind of a father, could do that to his sonHe said 'damn you daddy', the day that he diedThe man didn't blink, but the little boy cried
Chorus
Half way through the serviceWhile the choir sand a hymnHe looked up above the preacherAnd he sat and stared at him
He said "Forgive me father"When he realizedThat he hadn't been unloved or alone all his lifeHis arms were stretched out as far as they'd goNailed to the cross, for the whole world to know
Chorus
