I WISH YOU HAD TURNED TO ME (Dave Estes) Jimmy Dean - 1970 I wish that you had turned to me before, my dear I might have saved some heartaches and some pain Oh, I wish that you had come to me, for now I fear That you may never love again SPOKEN: I see a crumpled pillow on an empty bed Where not long ago you laid your pretty head Curtains blowin' from an open window And you sit there and your mind wonders "What have I gotten myself into" Teardrops mark the trail you took In search of a love that you've read about somewhere in a book And the sadness of your disappointed eyes That yesterday were filled with such innocent surprise When you were just a little girl Why, we could talk about anything Anything in the whole wide world But then you grew older and other friends you had Seemed to take the place of your kinda square Dad I wish it had been me to whom you turned I might have helped with some things that I've learned Like love's a flower that must be fed And, hon, it's not somethin' you find in a bed Oh, I wish that you had turned to me before, my dear I might have saved some heartaches and some pain I wish that you had come to me, for now I fear That you may never love again SPOKEN: What was to have been fulfillment Turned out to be nothin' but cheap disgrace To match the utter disillusion that's charted all over your face It mirrors all the broken promises of love since time began And now you sit and wonder, "Dad, will I ever, ever love again?" Where's the love the darkness promised in this unbelieving world And what's to happen of what's left of my sweet disillusioned little girl But you're young and time's very kind and we worked a few miracles before Mendin' other broken dolly's leg Why, sweetheart, don't you know that's what dads are for But I wish that you had turned to me before, my dear I might have saved some heartaches and some pain I wish that you had come to me, for now I fear That you may never love again (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - September 2013)
