My Father's Eyes


(by eric clapton)

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 fathers eyes
My fathers eyes
When I look in my fathers eyes
My fathers 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, Ive realized
That's when I need them,
That's when I need my fathers eyes
My fathers eyes
That's when I need my fathers eyes
My fathers eyes

Then the jagged edge appears
Through the distant clouds of tears
Im 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, Ive realized
That he was here with me;
I looked into my fathers eyes
My fathers eyes
I looked into my fathers eyes
My fathers eyes

My fathers eyes
My fathers eyes
I looked into my fathers eyes
My fathers eyes
