      B        Emaj7          F#            B   
      Sailing down behind the sun, 
      C#      Emaj7          F#               B
      waiting for my prince to come.
      B        Emaj7          F#            G#m
      Praying for the healing rain 
      C#      D          A             E
      to restore my soul again.

      C#m       C#m/A      A6     B
      Just a toerag on the run. 
      E/G#        A                F#m               B
      How did I get here?  What have I done?
      C#m       C#m/A      A6     B
      When will all my hopes arise?
      E/G#        A                  F#m               B
      How will I know him?  When I look in my father's eyes.

      Intro patern
      My father's eyes. 
      When I look in my father's eyes. 
      My father's eyes.

      Then the light begins to shine 
      and I hear those ancient lullabys.
      And as I watched this seedling grow, 
      feel my heart start to overflow
      When will I learn the words to say? 
      How do I teach him?  What do we play?
      Bit by bit, I've realize
      That's when I need them, that's when I need my father's eyes.

      My father's eyes. 
      That's when I need my father's eyes. 
      My father's eyes.

      Then the jagged edge appears 
      through the distant clouds of tears.
      I'm like a bridge that has 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, I've realize
      That he was here with me; I'd looked into my father's eyes.

      My father's eyes. 
      I'd looked into my father's eyes.
      My father's eyes.
