ID LOVE TO HEAR YOU LAUGHING
LOVE TO SEE YOU SMILE
DANCE THAT LITTLE DANCE YOU DANCED
WHEN YOU WERE JUST A CHILD
THE WAY THE WORLD CAME AT YOU
LEFT YOU BITTER AND CONFUSED
THE MORE I TRIED TO GUIDE YOUR PATH
THE MORE YOU JUST FELT USED

THE SUNS COMES UP TO MY ROOM BUT THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES
IT CAN ROCK YOU LIKE A BABY IT CAN KNOCK YOU TO YOUR KNESS
THE PATH THAT LIES BETWEEN US IS A STAR CROSSED AVENUE
IVE DONE EVERYTHING I CAN DOTHERES NOTHING I CAN DO

SO YOU LOVED THAT GIRL TO DEATH
AND YOURE SCARED TO TAKE A BREATH
ITS LIKE EVERYTHING YOUR DREAD
SWINGS A HAMMER IN YOUR HEAD
SO HER HEARTS LOCKED IN A VAULT
AND YOU THINK ITS ALL YOUR FAULT
ITS A DREAM AS OLD AS DIRT
YOU CANT STAND TO SEE HER HURT

MAY THE LITTLE VOICE THAT GUIDES YA
SEND A MESSAGE THROUGH FOR ME
REMINDING YOU YOURE BEAUTIFUL
AND WILL FOREVER BE
I WISH THAT I COULD BE THERE NOW
TO TELL YOU ITS ALRIGHT
ITS A DARK AND DAUNTING RAZORS EDGE
YOURE WALKING ON TONIGHT

THE SUN COMES UP TO MY ROOM BUT THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES
IT CAN ROCK YOU LIKE A BABY IT CAN KNOCK YOU TO YOUR KNESS
THE PATH THAT LIES BETWEEN US IS A ROUGH AND ROCKY ROUTE
IVE DONE EVERYTHING I CAN AND THERES NOTHING I CAN DO

SO YOURE LEARNING TO LET GO
AND THE PROCESS IS SO SLOW
AND WHILE YOUR BABY PLUMBS THE DEPTHS
YOU KEEP CLIMBING UP THE STEPS
SHE WAS DADDYS LITTLE GIRL
YOU WERE RULER OF THE WORLD
AND NOW SHES OUT THERE IN THE FRAY
AHH BUT SHELL BE BACK SOMEDAY

YOUVE HEARD ME SAY A MILLION TIMES
MY WORK IS NEVER DONE
FOR THOSE WHO KEEP THE WOLVES AT BAY
THERE IS NO SETTING SUN
TO SEE YOU STANDING HERE TODAY
PRAY CHILD YOUVE COME SO FAR
WHICH PROOVES THAT YOU CAN FIND YOUR WAY
NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE

THE SUN COMES UP TO MY ROOM BUT THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES
IT CAN ROCK YOU LIKE A BABY IT CAN KNOCK YOU TO YOUR KNEES
THE PATH THAT LIES BETWEEN US IS THE LONG WAY HOME ITS TRUE
IVE DONE EVERYTHING I CAN AND THERES NOTHING I CAN DO

IVE DONE EVERYTHING I CAN...HEY LOOK AT YOU
