about

As I mentioned before in Jaded Jasmine, understand why a person acts a certain way requires a certain level of maturity and selflessness. Ironically, I got to learn more about my ex after we broke up rather than when we were together. It is not my story to explicitly share what I came to learn, so I decided to write a song about it. I'll allow you to reflect upon it as well.

lyrics

Pardon me, sir, I know we’ve never met
But I know you like the back of your daughter’s hand
The same hand I’d love to wed someday

So I’ll ask you now and formally
Father could you spare your blessing to me?

To the father of a divorced daughter,
You have my word that I’ll never think to leave her
The same way you left her alone with her mother

And I promise I won’t be a weekend lover
She’ll only see every Saturday and Sunday just like her…

Father, I don’t mind
If it takes her sometime to learn to love again
I can wait forever
Unlike her father

I met her mother’s new partner
She knows he a good man; he’s nothing like her father
I wonder if she fears that every man in her life will leave her

I’m afraid that she can’t love me back
Just like the man she once called…

Father, I don’t mind
If it takes her sometime to learn to love again
I can wait forever
Unlike her father

(She looks just like her old man)
