As Long As Forever

We had a talk that we never thought about
He was sorry that it happened then walked out
Now I have to tell my Daddy what would happen in
nine months time
It wasn’t easy to hear that his little girl
would be bringing a baby like herself into this world
He took my hands, then he said

I’ve got you
and I’m not letting go
Don’t look down just look at me
It’ll be alright you just need to trust me
It will take both of us, we can do it together
I’ll be around no matter, what it takes
Even as long as forever

He worked so hard to help us out
I finished school and got a job at the coffeehouse
He loved his granddaughter, there was no questioning
Momma would be so proud, he said to me
You and angel baby are so much to me

Daddy was hurt and we were lost
I was tired but got a second job
I knew it was my turn to take care of him
Then the day came, Angel took her steps
The first time she fell I knew my Daddy wept
Then I cried, when he took her hands and said

I’ve got you
and I’m not letting go
Don’t look down just look at me
It’ll be alright you just need to trust me
It will take both of us, we can do it together
I’ll be around no matter, what it takes
Even as long as forever

I walked down the aisle on graduation day
We went to visit Daddy, and placed flowers on his grave
I was sad but glad to see him with Momma
Couldn’t help it but I started to weep
Then baby Angel grabbed my hands and said to me

I’ve got you
and I’m not letting go
Don’t look down just look at me
It’ll be alright you just need to trust me
It will take both of us, we can do it together
I’ll be around no matter, what it takes
Even as long as forever

As Long As Forever

Artist's Description

This is a set of lyrics I wrote for my sister (who is an in law) when she became pregnant with her awesome daughter and at the same time was abandoned by her supposed fiancee…ugh, he was a jerk and having had a deadbeat for a father myself, that baby is so lucky to be without him. When I got pregnant I was young and in the military, my father wasn’t happy, so I wrote my own version of how I wish he’d handle it so I guess you can say I wrote this for myself, also.
