lyrics

We met on a Saturday
It was just like any other Saturday
Except it was the day I was born
Took me to church on a Sunday
It was just like any other Sunday
Except it was the day
That I found the lord

They say you don't wanna be
Your father's daughter
But he's kind, even if he
Doesn't take care of my mother
And I know that times are tough
And he's just down on his luck
But I guess we'll have to wait
Until tomorrow

We planted seeds on a Monday
It was just like any other Monday
Except it was the day I found
The patience to grow
Those seeds sprouted on a Wednesday
It was the day that the gardener came
And cut down everything we'd grown to know

They say you don't wanna be
Your father's daughter
But he's able, even if he
Doesn't provide for his daughters
And I know that times are tough
And he's just down on his luck
But I guess we'll have to wait
Until tomorrow, tomorrow
We'll wait til tomorrow ooh

We lost our house on a Thursday
It was just like any other Thursday
Because we'd lost our house
One too many times before
I got paid on a Friday
It was just like any other Friday
Except it was the day that
I walked out the door

I say, I'm still proud to be
My father's daughter
Without him, I don't know
How I could've end up any stronger
I love his whole heart
But with our time apart
I hope he learns to be
His daughter's father
