Fathers And Daughters Lyrics

[Verse 1]
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

[Verse 2]
I believe a 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 ’til I leave you with a sweet dream in your head

[Chorus]
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
There could never be a father who loved his daughter more than I love you

[Verse 3]
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

[Chorus]
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
There could never be a father who loved his daughter more than I love you

[Chorus]
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
There could never be a father who loved his daughter more than I love you
