Happy birthday daddy Your birthday day is here But isn’t it so different To this day throughout the years?
I was your little present So frightened and afraid So weak and feeling vulnerable My voice began to fade
Your dirty little secret Filled me with shame and pain and fear Things are so very different now I begin to shed a tear
Happy Birthday daddy You still hide behind your lies But people see you differently They see you through my eyes
Your dirty little secret Is no longer mine to bear I’ve found my voice and spoken up Our little secret I have shared
I’m scared, confused and broken For you took all my self-worth But the little girl inside of me Is beginning to unearth
My wounds aren’t on my body But instead sit in my mind The memories and the nightmares Are beginning to unwind
I do not wish to sleep For nightmares take the place of dreams I do not wish to wake For reasons much the same
Happy birthday daddy People know now what you did They know that you abused me When I was just a little kid
I had no-one to talk to No-one to tell, nowhere to hide I kept the pain you caused me To myself and almost died
The little girl you took from me Is caged inside my soul Her heart is torn and broken I cannot make it whole
You stole my dreams and childhood You took my family too But I do not need any of you To help me make it through
Happy birthday daddy Are you scared of the unknown? This is how it feels To be so all alone
Happy birthday daddy You have nowhere to hide For once it may be your freedom That is finally denied!
