"Daddy Issues" is a song by Demi Lovato which appears on her sixth studio album, "Tell Me You Love Me". Demi confirmed "Daddy Issues" on August 17, 2017, during an interview at the Elvis Duran Show.

Background

After Demi was asked by Elvis Duran when she actually goes to the studio for writing songs, she answered that she is in the studio during the day or in the late afternoon. Further, she explains that she has a concept for songwriting which is based on the title. Demi was in the car and it just came in mind to write a song named "Daddy Issues" which she wants to sound up-tempo and kind of fun. [1]

On September 13, 2017, Demi revealed the tracklist with her fans via Twitter. Daddy Issues is revealed to be the fifth track off the album.[2]

On September 27, she teased a snippet of the song along with the Lil Wayne collaboration, "Lonely".[3]

Demi: "I knew I wanted to record this song the second I heard it. It's both ('Daddy Issues' and 'Concentrate') soulful and playful -- not to mention, very sexy."[4]

Lyrics

[Intro]
(Go)

[Verse 1]
I call you too much
You never pick up
Except when you wanna fuck
And I can't get enough
You're the man of my dreams
'Cause you know how to leave
But I really believe that you'd change it for me

[Pre-Chorus]
You're unavailable
(Unavailable)
I'm insatiable

[Chorus]
Lucky for you, I got all these daddy issues
What can I do?
I'm going crazy when I'm with you
Forget all the therapy that I've been through
Lucky for you
I got all these daddy issues
(All these daddy issues)
Daddy issues, uh
Daddy issues, uh

[Verse 2]
Don't know how to commit
But I might want your kid
And after our first kiss
Got your name on my wrist
Yeah, I get a little obsessive
A little aggressive, a little bit too invested
And whatever you want, whenever you want
That's what you get 'cause

[Pre-Chorus]
You're unavailable
(You're unavailable)
I'm insatiable

[Chorus]
Lucky for you
I got all these daddy issues
What can I do?
I'm going crazy when I'm with you
Forget all the therapy that I've been through
Lucky for you, I got all these daddy issues
(All these daddy issues)
Daddy issues, uh
Daddy issues, uh

[Bridge]
Never enough
Addicted to love with the wrong one

[Chorus]
Lucky for you, I got all these daddy issues
(All these daddy issues)
What can I do?
I'm going crazy when I'm with you (Crazy)
Forget all the therapy that I've been through
(That I've been through)
Lucky for you (Lucky for you)
I got all these daddy issues
(All these daddy issues)
Daddy issues, uh
(All these daddy issues)
Daddy issues, uh
(All these daddy issues)
Daddy issues, uh
Daddy issues, uh
