From the recording Moments of Clarity
And a sea of ocean blue.
She says you've got the look of me,
But I think you share her too.
You came into this world,
Just one day from a tragic anniversary.
And I closed my eyes
Thanking God for this precious opportunity.
And I hoped,
I could give you all that you'd demand.
And I shed a tear to thank my God for the gift within my hands,
And I wondered, if you'd take these words and make them all your own,
And I'd tried to straighten up this world that you now call your home.
And I'd prayed that everyday
He'd keep watch over you
Like I do.
It's been a long time now since we've brought you to your home.
The memory of that day tugs the heart that you now own.
I lay away some nights as you drift into the depth.
And when you open ocean-blue eyes I try to catch my breath.
And I hope I can give you
All that you demand
And I close my eyes and thank my God for the gift within my hands.
And I wonder if you'll take these words and make them all your own.
And I know you'll brighten up this world that you now call your home,
And I pray that everyday He'll keep watch over you
Like I Do.
Like I Do.
