The Neighbourhood - Daddy Issues

[Verse 1]
Take you like a drug
I taste you on my tongue

You ask me what I'm thinking about
I tell you that I'm thinking about
Whatever you're thinking about
Tell me something that I'll forget
And you might have to tell me again
It's crazy what you'll do for a friend

Go ahead and cry, little girl
Nobody does it like you do
I know how much it matters to you
I know that you got daddy issues
And if you were my little girl
I'd do whatever I could do
I'd run away and hide with you
I know that you got daddy issues, and I do too

[Verse 2]
I tried to write your name in the rain
But the rain never came
So I made with the sun
The shade
Always comes at the worst time

“Daddy Issues” peers into the relationship between frontman Jesse Rutherford and his late father. Lyrical content from “1 of Those Weaks,” “R.I.P. 2 My Youth,” and “Greetings From Califournia,” as well as a tweet Rutherford made in 2014, mention the passing of his father. Although the song refers to his father several times, it should still be known that he talks about the effects of growing up without a father specifically for younger contemporary women.
