Lyrics

Please Don?t Go

A bright summer day in a little shanty town
There?s brand new daddy with a baby in his arms
A little girl, with her momma?s smile
She?s gonna break the heart of boy some day

Sitting on her daddy?s knee, he holds her close to himself
Wanting to be the one to protect her, from the pain of the world
Though he knows, in little while, he has to let her go
Like a wild flower she grows, and her daddy speak these words

Chorus:
Please don?t go where the wild men run,
When they?re out there having fun
You?re a young girl who holds her daddy?s heart
Please don?t go where agony calls
Though it sounds so sweet, you?ll fall
And it?s so hard to find your way? back home

A hot summer night on a weekend in the city
There?s a young girl out on the town with some friends
A young girl, with her momma?s smile
She?s turning the heads of the boys gathered ?round

And it?s party time tonight
And the young men are running hard
There?s a great new world to find, as she steps into his car
With a bottle in his hand, the car is hard to control?

She thinks back to a little child, sitting on her daddy?s knee
Remembering the words he spoke, to keep her from the pain of the world
Now he knows that it?s time, he has to let her go
Like a wild flower, she?s gone, and her daddy speaks these words?

Chorus:
Please don?t go where the wild men run,
When they?re out there having fun
You?re a young girl who holds her daddy?s heart
Please don?t go where agony calls
Though it sounds so sweet, you?ll fall
And it?s so hard to find your way? back home
(repeat chorus)

A bright summer day in a little shanty town
There?s a brand new daddy with a baby in his arms?
