Father and Daughter

If you leap awake – In the mirror of a bad dream
And for a fraction of a second – You can’t remember where you are
Just open your window – And follow your memory upstream
To the meadow in the mountain, where we counted every falling star
I believe the light that shines on you will shine on you forever
And though I can’t guarantee there’s nothing scary hiding under your bed
I’m gonna stand guard like a postcard of a Golden Retriever
And never leave till I leave you – With a sweet dream in your head

I’m gonna watch you shine – Gonna watch you grow
Gonna paint a sign – So you’ll always know
As long as one and one is two—oo-oo
There could never be a father loved his daughter more than I love you

Trust your intuition – It’s just like going fishing
You cast your line – And hope you get a bite
But you don’t need to waste your time
Worrying about the market place – Try to help the human race
Struggling to survive its harshest night
