I woke up this morning
The room felt empty and bare
As I turned to the closet
Your clothes were not there
I walked to the kichen
Found our little girl with a note
As I read it to myself
The tears began to flow and she said

Please daddy don't cry that way
I know mommy left us, but that's ok
Please daddy don't cry so hard
You don't know how it scares me
And I wish you would stop
Please daddy don't cry that way
'Cause I'm right here beside you
And I promised that I'll stay

I looked down at her
Through tear stained eyes
It is though you were there in a tiny disguise
She clenches her pyjama
With that soft little hand
See all this that's happening
She can't quite understand but she says

Please daddy don't cry that way
I know mommy left us, but that's ok
Please daddy don't cry so hard
You don't know how it scares me
And I wish you would stop
Please daddy don't cry that way
'Cause I'm right here beside you
And I promised that I'll stay

Searching my heart
And trying to explain
But the words that come out
Are swollen with pain
She looks through my eyes
Right down to my soul
Sees all the hurt
That I can't control and she says

Please daddy don't cry that way
I know mommy left us, but that's ok
Please daddy don't cry so hard
You don't know how it scares me
And I wish you would stop
Please daddy don't cry that way
'Cause I'm right here beside you
And I promised that I'll stay

Please daddy don't cry that way
I'm right here beside you
And I promised that I'll stay
