.

Daddy, please don't go.
I couldn't face this lonely world without you.
Father please don't go.
I couldn't walk this mortal coil without you here.

Through these dark and empty streets
Past the strangers with their secrets
Wrapped around them like their clothes...
I long for you

In the silence of the grief
In the sadness in their eyes
I creep around these broken walls
And long for you

Daddy, please don't go.
I couldn't face this lonely world without you.
Father please don't go.
I couldn't walk this mortal coil without you here.

I walked past a man without a face
Who recoiled as if my touch
Would be the thing to bring him down,
Oh, so down.

As he starts to disappear
I think I hear him call my name
And whisper; "Daughter,
Don't you understand by now?"

"Even as I walk these quiet streets,
You call to me.
Even as I walk these tired feet,
You speak to me."

Daddy, please don't go.
I couldn't face this lonely world without you.
Father please don't go.
I couldn't walk this mortal coil without you here.
