Lyrics


Sailing down behind the sun Waiting for my prince to come Praying for the healing rain To restore my soul again

Just a toe rag on the run How did I get here? What have I done? When will all my hopes arise? How will I know him? When I look in my father's eyes

My father's eyes When I look in my father's eyes (look into my father's eyes) My father's eyes

Then the light begins to shine And I hear those ancient lullabies And as I watch this seedling grow Feel my heart start to overflow

Where do I find the words to say? How do I teach him? What do we play? Bit by bit, I've realized That's when I need them That's when I need my father's eyes

My father's eyes That's when I need my father's eyes (look into my father's eyes) My father's eyes (yeah)

Then the jagged edge appears Through the distant clouds of tears I'm like a bridge that was washed away My foundations were made of clay

As my soul slides down to die How could I lose him? What did I try? Bit by bit, I've realized That he was here with me And I looked into my father's eyes

My father's eyes I looked into my father's eyes (look into my father's eyes) My father's eyes

My father's eyes (look into my father's eyes) My father's eyes I looked into my father's eyes (looked into my father's eyes) My father's eyes (Look into my father's eyes) (Look into my father's eyes, yeah, yeah)
