Lyrics

Sailin' down behind the sun
Waitin' 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?
(Look into my father's eyes)
My father's eyes
When I looked 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

(Look into 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
Now 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

(Look 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
(Look into my father's eyes)
My father's eyes

(Look into my father's eyes)
(Look into my father's eyes)
(Yeah, yeah)
(Look into my father's eyes)
