Oh dear daughter, how I look to you to guide me,
As a lighthouse beams out to sailors in the night,
My ship steers to your heart which shines so bright.
There’s wisdom in an innocence so pure and free.
It’s hard to describe just how I feel for you my dear.
Before gazing upon your face with tear-filled eyes,
I hadn’t felt such warmth from even sun kissed skies.
If one day I fell to disarray, my helm is yours to steer.
I have lived my life as a stubborn man,
Yet you can bring me to my knees.
On my own two legs I’ll always stand,
But it’s your heart I strive to please.
So direct me baby like only you can,
The way the tide can orchestrate the seas.
