Lyrics
I was your daddy once
Wearing a sailor cap and dirty nails
To you I'm just a picture on your mother's mantlepiece
Who chose to fight the good fight in time to fail

Into battle
And in your shadow
Your daddy loves you still
Yes I do

I never thought it'd be so hard to see you grow so fast
And turn into the man I used to be
But I hope you have more sense than I in matters such as these
Medals don't mean shit when a family is lost at sea

I save every moment I've reached out and almost touched you
But they all fade away must be a bad memory
