    Secret lives creep
    On tippy-toes in the streets
    Away from their home life
    As the family sleeps

    shadows tend to gossip
    And slither throughout the night
    Sneaking voices break the silence
    “Baby the time is right”

    she is to him
    what others never were
    she’s the love he never had
    he’s security for her

    wifey bought into his dream
    but won’t invest in the man
    being patient while he made it
    wasn’t part of her plan

    he works longer hours
    the kids are grown and gone away
    inter-marital dysfunction
    leads to extra-marital dates

    baby girl liked bad boys
    with foul mouths and tattoos
    she thought daddy was lame
    because he preached and wore suits

    now she’s the hostage of a felon
    her devotion to him hurts
    daddy told her come back home
    pain won’t let her go to church

    she knows the answer to her prayers
    but it’s hard to keep from sin
    her progress is sneaking off
    to meet the mystery man again

    she waits at the waffle house
    and out the corner of her eye
    she catches mama kissing felon
    as daddy comes inside

    baby girl was trying to change
    daddy offered his support
    mama never tried
    now their filing for divorce

    daughter was to daddy
    what others never were
    she’s the love he never had
    he’s her forgiving father
