Every once in a while you hear a song that just hits you right in the feels. This song 'Daddy' from Coldplay's latest Everyday Life album is simply that. I grew up without a dad, so the words hit me hard. I know that I'm not the only sons and daughters in the world growing up without a father figure at home, so I dedicate this song to all of you. If you have your dad with you right now, hug him close and tell him you love him. If you're a Dad, then be a good one to your children. Our presence as fathers means so much to our kids.
All instruments, vocals, recording, mix and video by yours truly :)
DADDY Written by Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland, Will Champion, Chris Martin
[Verse 1] Daddy, are you out there? Daddy, won't you come and play? Daddy, do you not care? Is there nothing that you wanna say?
[Pre-Chorus] I know You're hurting too But I need you, I do Daddy, if you're out there Daddy, all I want to say
[Chorus] You're so far away Oh, you're so far away That's okay, it's okay I'm okay
[Verse 2] Daddy, are you out there? Daddy, why'd you run away? Daddy, are you okay? Look, Dad, we got the same hair And Daddy, it's my birthday And all I wanna say
[Chorus] Is you're so far away Oh, and you're so far away That's okay, it's okay It's okay
[Bridge] Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh) You're so far away
[Outro] Won't you come and won't you stay? Please stay, oh, please stay Won't you come and won't you stay? One day, just one day
