My Father's Eyes Lyrics

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

Just a toerag on the run.
How did I get here?
What have I done?
When will all my hopes arise?
How will I know...

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

    Just a toerag 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.
    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.
    My father's eyes.

    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;
    I looked into my father's eyes.
    My father's eyes.
    I looked into my father's eyes.
    My father's eyes.

    My father's eyes.
    My father's eyes.
    I looked into my father's eyes.
    My father's eyes.
