DEMI LOVATO


For The Love Of A Daughter Lyrics

Four years old with my back to the door
All I could hear was the family war
Your selfish hands always expecting more
Am I your child or just a charity ward
You have a hollowed out heart
But it's heavy in your chest
I try so hard to fight it
But it's hopeless
Hopeless
You're hopeless
Oh father,
Please father
I'd love to leave you alone
But I can't let you go
Oh father
Please father
Put the bottle down
For the love of a daughter
Oh
It's been five years
Since we've spoken last,
And you can't take back
What we never had
Oh, I can be manipulated
Only so many times
Before even I love you
Starts to sound like a lie
You have a hollowed out heart
But it's heavy in your chest
I try so hard to fight it

But it's hopeless,
Hopeless
You're hopeless
Oh father
Please father
I'd love to leave you alone
But I can't let you go
Oh father
Please father
Put the bottle down
For the love of a daughter
Don't you remember
I'm your baby girl
How could you push me out of your world
Lie to your flesh and your blood
Put your hands on the ones that you swore you loved
Don't you remember
I'm your baby girl
How could you throw me right out of your world
So young when the pain had begun
Now forever afraid of being loved
Oh father
Please father
I'd love to leave you alone
But I can't let you go
Oh father
Please father
Put the bottle down
For the love of a daughter
For the love of a daughter

I think this is Demis way of expressing her feelings about her dad or someone elses dad. From this song he's a alcholic,a selfish man who argues with her mom. She loves her dad,but shes nothing to him

This was how I WAS at four years old. It lasted till I was 10 :) And hearing this song bring back tears cause it reminds me of how my family was at that time

I have never found a song that matched my life. When I listen to Demi , for some reason I see myself. I am nowhere close to being what a beautiful and amazing person she is, but we have the same heart

Its about a girl who had an acohlec for a dad who you to do hit her because he was drunk. So this was a cry for help saying that I love you but its not ok to put your hands on the ones that you love.

I think this song has a lot of meaning to it. Where fathers care more about drugs and alchohol and other things than their kids. :(.
