Hi,

My name is Jenn. My father and I have had a pretty tough love and hate relationship. It's very hard for me to find a song that fits us perfectly. Do you have any suggestions. I love my daddy but he's a very cold and complicated person. I need to chose the perfect song . Do you have any suggestions? Any songs come to mind?

How about:

Love Can Build a Bridge - The Judds

Iíd gladly walk across the desert
With no shoes upon my feet
To share with you the last bite
Of bread I had to eat
I would swim out to save you
In your sea of broken dreams
When all your hopes are sinkiní
Let me show you what love means

(chorus)

Love can build a bridge
Between your heart and mine
Love can build a bridge
Donít you think itís time?
Donít you think itís time?

I would whisper love so loudly
Every heart could understand
That love and only love
Can join the tribes of man
I would give my heartís desire
So that you might see
The first step is to realize
That it all begins with you and me

(repeat chorus)

When we stand together
Itís our finest hour
We can do anything, anything
Keep believiní in the power

(repeat chorus)

Love and only love
Love and only love

Have I Told You Lately That I Love You - Rod Stewart

When You Say Nothing at All - Allison Krauss

Just the Way You Are - Billy Joel

Daughter's by John Mayer:

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

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

So 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 the warmth from
A womans good, good heart

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

So 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

No one said love was easy, and it's hard being as honest as you have regarding your relationship. I'm a firm believer in NO REGRETS, and it's one of the reasons why I feel so strongly about the song below. Maybe this song will be too close for comfort, but then again, maybe it will help bridge the gap. I wish you the best.

Mike & the Mechanics.... In the living years.....

Every generation
Blames the one before
And all of their frustrations
Come beating on your door
I know that I'm a prisoner
To all my Father held so dear
I know that I'm a hostage
To all his hopes and fears
I just wish I could have told him in the living years
Crumpled bits of paper
Filled with imperfect thought
Stilted conversations
I'm afraid that's all we've got
You say you just don't see it
He says it's perfect sense
You just can't get agreement
In this present tense
We all talk a different language
Talking in defense
Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It's too late when we die
To admit we don't see eye to eye
So we open up a quarrel
Between the present and the past
We only sacrifice the future
It's the bitterness that lasts
So Don't yield to the fortunes
You sometimes see as fate
It may have a new perspective
On a different date
And if you don't give up, and don't give in
You may just be O.K.
Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It's too late when we die
To admit we don't see eye to eye
I wasn't there that morning
When my Father passed away
I didn't get to tell him
All the things I had to say
I think I caught his spirit
Later that same year
I'm sure I heard his echo
In my baby's new born tears
I just wish I could have told him in the living years
Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It's too late when we die
To admit we don't see eye to eye
