I’ve always thought of this song as the female version of “Cat’s in the Cradle.” It’s still about dads, but related to daughters and not sons. Bob Carlisle is a Contemporary Christian singer, but he had a crossover pop hit with this song in the late 1990s. I think a lot of people think it’s sappy, but it has its champions.
