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 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
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
Trust your intuition
It’s just like goin’ fishin’
You cast your line and hope you get a bite
But you don’t need to waste your time
Worryin’ about the market place
Try to help the human race
Struggling to survive its harshest night
(Chorus 2x)
