All This Time

from Danya River by Danya River



You are an arctic refuge
and a hundred words for snow
Or maybe you're a lost volcano
and I'm growing where you used to flow

But see I sprouted where you
left a thousand pieces of my heart behind
And now I finally have the confidence
to ask you where your love was all this time,
all this time

Ooh, all this time, ooh

I am not a child anymore
I am nineteen turning twenty in July
The years have peeled away my fury and
I’m shaking like a newborn butterfly

Though you may never be the father
that I wished I had had
and though my brothers may never forgive you
I'm still praying that I can, I promise you I can

Ooh, for all this time, ooh

Though you never told him I'm alive
I thought I'd give a call to meet your dad
And when I heard his anger ring
I think I finally knew why you have been so sad

Ooh, all this time, ooh

“All this Time” is fictional and loosely based on the life
experiences of a young woman I once met. My own
dad is a loving, devoted, and ever-present father.
