Lyrics

Good Intentions

Written By: Melynda Marshall

Verse 1:
He used to write her letters,
Come ‘round on Holidays,
Birthday cards with five dollar bills,
But those letters they stopped comin’,
Birthdays soon forgot,
And he hasn’t even called in several years.

Chorus:
She never heard those precious words,
“Daddy’s little girl”,
Or felt his arms around her, so tight,
Comin’ from a broken heart, that just never mends,
Good Intentions just don’t make it right

Verse 2:
She used to write him letters,
Made cards at Father’s Day,
Mostly to be like the other kids
Found all her affections,
Compliments that came,
Never were enough, cuz they weren’t his.

Chorus

Bridge:
She danced all those recitals
Acted all those plays
Looked for him at graduation day,
Words of encouragement, she longed to hear him say,
No one there to give her away

Sometimes she writes him letters, not sure what to say,
Doesn’t think she’ll send them anyway

Chorus

Comin’ from a broken heart, that just never mends,
Good Intentions just don’t make it right
Good Intentions just don’t make it right
