I paid first and last month's rent, I wondered why I even carried in that old bed of mine
It's not like I ever sleep
All I do is think of her, and wonder how i'm gonna make things work
Cause I know as a dad I got a lot of responsibility
And even though God gave this gift to the both of us
Some how every other weekend is how it ended up

(Chorus)
So when the telephone rings, I drop everything
Cause when all you got is that 8 o'clock, nite nite dad i miss you a lot
I stop in my tracks, and I try to act strong when she calls
And I thank God she can't hear tears...when they fall

Now it's her Dr. Seuss and me,she's learning how to read
And I can't see those pictures, but I can hear those pages turn
And her mama says it bathtime, so she blows a kiss through the line
I don't know whats worse saying goodbye, or talking to her
Cause i'm the one that should be there tucking her in the bed
But since her voice is all I have i'm thankful for what I get

(Repeat Chorus)

If she knew I was crying she might think it's her fault, oh but that's just me missing her
Everytime we talk....everytime we talk

(Repeat Chorus)
