For the Love of a Daughter Lyrics

Four years old with my back to the door
All I could hear was the family war
Your selfish hands always expecting more
Am I your child or just a charity award?

You have a hollowed out heart
But it's heavy in your chest
I try so hard to...

    this is why I love Demi. she expresses herself in her music. she's always letting us see the troubles she has or had to go through. Demi is so much stronger than most people think. she's such a huge inspiration to so many people, including me. I'm glad she's doing better now & I hope she never changes herself beacuse she's really amazing.

    I think this song is really sad. But it kind of shows me and my dads realationship, but not completely. He loves me and he buys me nice things and never steals my money. But he does do other things. He drinks, smokes, and when him and my mom divorced and she got together with someone else he stole her wedding ring! I never ask him about any of these things. And he never wore his ring when he went to the store or any where just to atract other women. I hate to say this but my dad has to sides. A jerk and a sweet guy. Also, he's went to jail 3 times because he was drinking and driving. Nice dad huh? -10 year-old surviver

    Her dad beat her, and her mom, and all her dad wanted from her was her money! He drank in front of her and i bet u anything he hit her with his beer... She is really strong, and im glad he went to rehab for her personal issues... I hope her dad can relize what an ass hes made of himself.. I hope he could "put the bottle down, for the love of his daughter"

    Omg I love this song! No wonder she's had it rough, being indepresion and having to go to rehab, because of what her dad did... It had effected her and I am glad that she wrote this song because if her dad heard it he would realize whatta beep he was being, but then again he is probably still to this moment drunk or on a hangover

    This song is a song about her childhood and her splochy relationship with her dad.
    Her dad WAS an abusive alcoholic. she had to watch as he beat her mom and over-drank, as her parents fought, and as her family fell to bits. And he also beat her up for money she got from acting and singing, he also used to hit her with a wine glass bottle. (Bless her, she's really strong) :(

    Her Father and her had never been close, she has spoken out bout her childhood! She is very strong! And very brave bout writing this song for her father, I guess hoping her father would change, and they would bond and get closer, OR she could be singin bout it just to get it out of her system...make herself feel better bout her childhood! I really pray for her, and I Thank he for this song! It really has baught some kind of Justice!

    im honestly confused, because i read that her and her father were really close but they didnt see each other for 4 years because he moved to mexico and had health problems, but then had a reunion.
    so i dont know if some of this is fiction or not but i reallllly want to knoow! :/ :P
