These times not far behind.
Original Lyrics:
She says Dad's the one I love the most
But Stipe's not far behind.
I saw that this was still being debated... ("But Stipe's not far behind). Those are the correct lyrics for that line -- on the Hootie and the Blowfish website, the lyrics posted there are the same ("But Stipe's not far behind"). Most likely 'she' is talking about Michael Stipe, lead singer for R-E-M. So, she loves her dad but Michael Stipe's not far behind in that category.

Trying to find a thought that's escaped her mind
She says, 'Dad's the one I love the most
