Barbra Streisand – Papa, Can You Hear Me? lyrics

(Filled with a love for learning, Yentl has
No choice after her father dies but to disguise
Herself as a man, so that she can pursue all
Her "sweet-imagined possibilities." Her
Journey begins...)
[Prayer]
Oh God-our heavenly Father.
Oh, God-and my father
Who is also in heaven.
May the light of this
Flickering candle
Illuminate the night the way
Your spirit illuminates my soul.

Papa, can you hear me?
Papa, can you see me?
Papa can you find me in the night?
Papa are you near me?
Papa, can you hear me?
Papa, can you help me not be frightened?
Looking at the skies I seem to see
A million eyes which ones are yours?
Where are you now that yesterday
Has waved goodbye
And closed its doors?
The night is so much darker
