Lyrics

If you ever leap awake
In the mirror of a bad dream
And for a fraction of a second
You can't remember where you are
Just open your window
And follow your memory upstream
To the meadow in the mountain
Where we counted every falling star

I believe the light that shines on you
Will shine on you forever
And though I can't guarantee
There's nothing scary hiding under your bed
I’m gonna stand guard
Like a postcard of a Golden Retriever
And never leave till I leave you
With a sweet dream in your head

I'm gonna watch you shine
Gonna watch you grow
Gonna paint a sign
So you'll always know
As long as one and one is two
There could never be a father
Who loved his daughter more than I love you

Trust your intuition
It's just like going fishing
You cast your line
And hope you'll get a bite
But you don't need to waste your time
Worrying about the market place
Try to help the human race
Struggling to survive its harshest night

I'm gonna watch you shine
Gonna watch you grow
Gonna paint a sign
So you'll always know
As long as one and one is two
There could never be a father
Who loved his daughter more than I love you

I'm gonna watch you shine
Gonna watch you grow
Gonna paint a sign
So you'll always know
As long as one and one is two
There could never be a father
Who loved his daughter more than I love you

My friend danced to this song at her wedding and there was not a dry eye in the house. It is a beautiful song if you have a close relationship with your father.

I have had this song picked out since I first heard it years ago!! I can't wait to see my Dad's reaction!! One Christmas, I drew a picture of me and him from when I was a little girl and wrote the lyrics to this song around the picture. He loved it!!!

I LOVE THIS SONG!!! I have always loved it since the wild thornberrys movie came out and i used 2 watch that show all the time as a kid and now that i'm engaged i didnt even need 2 look through other songs because i knew this was the one i wanted since i first heard it

Caitlyn says...
My dad took my brother and I to see this movie when it came out, and I remember my dad and I sitting there crying in the back row of the movie theater. Since then, this has been our song.

When he married my stepmom, I told her that I wanted to surprise my dad by having this song played and dancing with him to it. When the time came, I walked out to the middle of the dance floor, and the DJ announced for my dad to join me, and we danced to this song. I asked him if he was surprised, but he was really confused. Turns out, he had told my stepmom the same thing, but she hadn't told either of us. :)
