Song for My Daughter

I will be witness to your foolishness
I will be straight man to your wierdness
I will listen to you singing
and believing that it’s beautiful
and I’ll believe it too

Cuz I believe in your tone of voice
as melody; even I love your noise
And what you say, well I hang on the words
like birds hang in air
like bells ride air too
I’m saying I like how you
ring in my ears

Even while you don’t know what it means
I’ll try to ride inside your dreaming
Cuz in this world where some
dreams don’t come true
I’m always surprised
what’s new in your mind
cuz it’s always cool

I will be sitting on your sidelines
I will be standing in your stands
I might be waiting at the window
with a shotgun in my hands
Anything, understand,
in your darkest night–
to make it right, what I’d do
ain’t limited to
the price of my life
the price of my life

I will be witness to your foolishness
I will be straight man to your wierdness
I will listen to you singing
and believing that it’s beautiful
and I’ll believe it too
cuz I believe in you
