Father is a song by Demi Lovato which appears as the eleventh track on her fifth album, Confident.

Background

Demi released a video on her official YouTube account on October 19, 2015 explaining the meaning behind "Father".

Critical Reception

ANDPOP writer Merna Jibrail stated: "Fans of the pop-star all know that Demi hasn’t had the easiest relationship with her father, but that won’t stop her from writing another song that’ll have you in tears. This song sounds like the closing chapter of all she’s dealt with her father who passed away in 2013. It’ll have you inspired to close any gaps or deal with problems you have with your parents; we all mistakes. Have tissues nearby for this one." [1]

Lyrics

Father, I'm gonna say thank you
Even if I'm still hurt
Oh, I'm gonna say bless you
I wanna mean those words

Always wished you the best
I, I prayed for your peace
Even if you started this
This whole war in me

You did your best or did you?
Sometimes I think I hate you
I'm sorry, dad, for feelin' this
I can't believe I'm sayin' it
I know you were a troubled man
I know you never got the chance
To be yourself, to be your best
I hope that Heaven's given you
A second chance

Father, I'm gonna say thank you
Even if I don't understand
Oh, you left us alone
I guess that made me who I am

Always wished you the best
I, I, I pray for your peace
Even if you started this
This whole war in me

You did your best or did you?
Sometimes I think I hate you
I'm sorry, dad, for feelin' this
I can't believe I'm sayin' it
I know you were a troubled man
I know you never got the chance
To be yourself, to be your best
I hope that Heaven's given you
You did your best or did you?
Sometimes I think I hate you
I'm sorry, dad, for feelin' this
I can't believe I'm sayin' it
I know you were a troubled man
I know you never got the chance
To be yourself, to be your best
I hope that Heaven's given you
A second chance
