Intro: Bm  G  

Verse:
Bm
Four years old with my 
            G
back to the door
Bm
All I could hear 
               G
was the family war
     Bm
Your selfish hands
            A    G
always expecting more
Bm
am I your child or
            A   G
just a charity award?

Pre-Chorus:
           Bm
You have a hollowed out heart
         G
But it’s heavy in your chest
  Em
I try so hard to fight it
D
But it’s hopeless
Bm      G       Em
hopeless You’re hopeless

Chorus:
G          Bm
  Oh father  please father
D
  I’d love to leave you alone
G
  but I can’t let you go
G          Bm
  Oh father  please father
D                G
  Put the bottle down for
the love of a daughter

Interlude: Bm D G  

Verse:
          Bm
It’s been 5 years since 
             G
we’ve spoken last
        Bm
And you can’t take back 
              G
what we never had oh
           Bm
I can be manipulated 
A              G
  only so many times
               Bm
Before even “I love you”
                       G
starts to sound like a lie

Pre-Chorus:
           Bm
You have a hollowed out heart
         G
But it’s heavy in your chest
  Em
I try so hard to fight it
D
But it’s hopeless
Bm      G       Em
hopeless You’re hopeless

Chorus:
G          Bm
  Oh father  please father
D
  I’d love to leave you alone
G
  but I can’t let you go
G          Bm
  Oh father  please father
D                G
  Put the bottle down for
              G       A
the love of a daughter

Bridge:
Bm
Don’t you remember
              D
I’m your baby girl?
Gb   
How could you push me
            D
out of your world?
A
Lied to your flesh 
and your blood
         E   
Put your hands on the ones

that you swore you loved
Bm
Don’t you remember 

I’m your baby girl?
Gb   
How could you throw me

right out of your world?
   A
So young when the pain had begun
       E   
Now forever afraid of being loved

Chorus:
G          Bm
  Oh father  please father
D
  I’d love to leave you alone
G
  but I can’t let you go
G          Bm             D  G
  Oh father  please father!
G          Bm
  Oh father  please father
D                G
  Put the bottle down for
              G       Bm D G
the love of a daughter
                  G       Bm D
for the love of a daughter
