The Reason I Write

Daddy daddy
A little girls hero

Her very first crush
Been with her since zero

He'd rock her to sleep
And tickle her till she woke

But her daddy, he left her
Recovering from coke

They visited and visited
After the divorce

But when her mum took up drinking
Her life changed for the worse

Reality became her enemy
All she wanted was life to cease

So with her earphones and a pen
She found her release
