Come To Daddy

[Live versions of the song often began with
“If it wasn’t for your mammy or your daddy
you wouldn’t be here tonight”]

This day, this day seems so long
This day, this day goes so slow
Like every other day
Day in, day out so boring
I don’t know, know what to do
I have so much, so much to do
Time and time and time again
Time and time I hear a call
“Love is lost and far away
My love is lost like yesterday”
Where would you be without mummy
What would you do without daddy
You tell me not to what to say
Down on all fours crawling like a dog, oh the pain
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Mirror, mirror, I see it all
My face looks old, old and grey
My face looks older than yesterday
And yesterday is tomorrow, only backwards
In the bedroom on the bed
In the kitchen on the floor
Come to daddy
Take a chance, take a chance today
Take a chance and blow it away
It’s all in the head.
Day in, day out, so boring
Oh we are, we are so young
Oh you know we have so much to look forward to
Time and time and time again
Time and time I hear my call
“Your dreams are lost and far away
Your dreams are further than yesterday”
Where would you be without mummy
What would you do without daddy
I told you not to wear that dress
Down on all fours crawling like a dog, oh the pain
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Mirror, mirror I see it all
Your face looks old, old and grey
Your face looks older than yesterday
And yesterday is tomorrow, only backwards
In the bedroom, on the bed
In the kitchen, on the floor
Come to daddy
Sweet Jesus died on the cross
Sweet Jesus died for my sins
The life I lead is here today
The love I need is far away
No way of getting there
Is there any way of getting there?
Oh we are, we are so young
Oh we have so much to look forward to
