    Lyrics

    I know a girl,
    She puts the color inside of my world
    But she's just like a maze
    Where all of the walls all continually change

    And I've done all I can
    To stand on her steps with my heart in my hands
    Now I'm starting to see
    Maybe it's got nothing to do with me

    CHORUS
    Fathers, be good to your daughters
    Daughters will love like you do
    Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
    So mothers, be good to your daughters too

    Oh, you see that skin?
    It's the same she's been standing in
    Since the day she saw him walking away
    Now she's left, cleaning up the mess he made

    CHORUS
    Fathers, be good to your daughters
    Daughters will love like you do
    Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
    So mothers, be good to your daughters too

    Boys, you can break
    You'll find out how much they can take
    Boys will be strong and boys soldier on
    But boys would be gone without warmth from
    A woman's good, good heart

    On behalf of every man
    Looking out for every girl
    You are the god and the weight of her world

    CHORUS
    Fathers, be good to your daughters
    Daughters will love like you do
    Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
    So mothers, be good to your daughters too
    So mothers, be good to your daughters too
    So mothers, be good to your daughters too
