I Love You This Much Lyrics

He can't remember
The times that he thought
Does my daddy love me?
Probably not
That didn't stop him
From wishing that he did
Didn't keep him from wanting
Or worshipping him
He guesses he saw him
About once a year
He could still feel the way he felt
Standing in tears
Stretching his arms out
As far as they'd go
Whispering dad
I want you to know

I love you this much
And I'm waiting on you
To make up your mind
Do you love me too?
How ever long it takes
I'm never giving up
no matter what,
I love you this much

He grew to hate him for what he had done
'Cause what kind of father
Could do that to his son?
He said 'damn you daddy'
The day that he died
The man didn't blink
But the little boy cried


Half way through the service
While the choir sang the hymn
He looked up above the preacher
And he sat and stared at him
He said
'Forgive me father'
When he realized
That he hadn't been unloved
Or alone all his life
His arms were stretched out
As far as they go
Nailed to the cross
For the whole world to know

this song is so sad. the first time that i ever listened to it i balled my eyes out because my daddy left me when i was 3 yrs old and i ain't never seen him since then. but he lives in Indiana and i wish he cared about me i really do love this song because it reminds me of my daddy i really love it.
