Daddy
Lyrics
"Hold me daddy," she says
"I'm frightened by darkness!"
As if I'm like the sun
Shining far above the clouds

Her eyes are clear
As the sky is near
And I'm like the sun
Shining far above the clouds

I am no more than a man
Frightened by the tides of life
Catching up to me
But I hold her tight
And she looks up lovingly

"You are my daddy," she says
"I want my daddy"
As if I'm like the sun
Shining far above the clouds

Her heart is clear
As the sky is near
And I'm like the sun
Shining far above the clouds
