I remember myself upon your shoulders, my eyes toward the sky,
My fingers holding tight your ears, my thoughts drifting high,
I remember humming gentle tunes, full of innocence and light,
I remember wishing on the stars you pointed out at night.
The world appeared more vivid in this elevated state,
Blood-dyed roses, emerald grass – crystalline fate,
The air smelled of honeysuckle joy, the ground as soft as silk,
Picnic at the nearby park was sweets and chocolate milk.
Oh how this chimera shattered in a time frame far too short,
And oh how the suffering trickled down the edges of our fort,
Oh why did you have to return to the place we had just left?
Oh what did we do to deserve this pain, this loss, this subtle theft?
This man I fell in love with left my mind in endless quake,
Caused my thoughts to loosen, and break, break, break.
Hey Daddy, you were the first to touch upon my heart,
Hey Daddy, you were the first to tear my love apart.
