Daddy and I never saw eye to eye
  I was wrong and never knew why
  He said, "Low." I said, "High."
  He said, "Stay," and I said, "Good bye."
I Wanted to Fly, I wanted to soar
  I needed to find out what was outside the front door
  I wanted to leave. I had to be free
  His love was my lock, my leash, a load that's too heavy for me
Sometimes we get old and never get wise
  I saw anger in Daddy's eyes
  I saw sadness. I never saw pride
  And it stayed that way till the day that he died
bridge I cried for my dad, but he didn’t know it.
  Mom said he loved me, and wanted to show it
  So he tried to protect me, but I couldn't breathe
  Then one night, in a dream, Daddy said to me
I knew you could fly. I knew you could soar.
  You already had the key to unlock that door
  I knew you would leave. You were already free.
  My love was your heart, your soul, your wings. You didn't see.
coda His love was my heart, my soul, my wings.
  Now I see.

"I had a stormy relationship with my father. Two years after he died, I dreamt about him. In that dream he told me, 'You never needed my help.'"
