Song Description

When she was a little girl her mom was killed in an accident. The dad couldn't get past the pain of loosing his wife. The daughter reminded him of that loss so he distanced himself from her, not giving her the love and attention she craved from him. She poses the question, " Daddy Could you spare a little time "

Story Behind the Song

I know of a woman who has gone through similar circumstance as a child, and wrote the song about her situation.

Daddy Could You Spare A Little TimeĀ© 2011 Janet Steely

Daddy could you spare / just a little time?
pieces of your heart / pieces of your mind?
a bit of you I can embrace / when I cant see your face?
Daddy could you spare / just a little time?

Daddy could you spare a look or two my way
You don't even know me / you just turn away.
You say I look just like my mother
she is gone but i'm still here
daddy could you spare / just a little time

Is there room in your heart for me
Am I pushed aside by old memories
I've saved a piece of my heart it's true
Here take it Daddy
It's only for you

Dad do you recall times of distant past
When we were a family picnics in the grass
In a heart beat it was shattered
Such a loss for you and me
Years have come and gone. I need you desperately

Daddy could you spare just a little time
Pieces of your heart pieces of your mind
The future will be brighter with you here in my heart
It's a place that I've been saving Saving from the start
