Written by Kara Suzanne


Will you rock me like a child
Man how I lived in style
Just like a little queen
Always fed and always clean

We had a little house
Clothes that Momma made
Still I questioned and I cried
Asking where and asking why

Like why's that man use a street for a bed
And why's he beggin' us for our pennies to be fed (or so he says)

Tell me Daddy what could bring a man that low
Well my dear, he said, the fear made it so
Made it so, made it so, well my dear the fear made it so

I was never one, for watching Parlor Walls
How I wish that were true
Cause they've got me and they've got you
They've got me and they've got you

Tell me Daddy what could bring a land that low
Well my dear the fear made it so
Made it so, made it so, well my dear the fear made it so

Then the bad times came and they took poor dad's light
And he went down in the dark
I couldn't fight though how I tried

Tell me Daddy what brought you this low
Well my dear my fear made it so
Made it so, made it so
I'm sorry my dear

Kara Suzanne Woodstock, New York

Part sullen cowgirl, part seductive cabaret singer and all soulful folk-rock songstress. Kara bewitches audiences with her original songs that are simultaneously heartbreaking and carefree. She's this generation's answer to Dolly Parton and Patty Griffin.
