Cat Stevens – Father lyrics

Father oh father
Hear me if you can
Is it true what they say
That life is a dream
I don't understand
The things that make rain in my eyes
Are they real or are they lies

You know I hear so much about you now
I'd give anything
To go on a little boat with you
Talk about the scheme of things
On a little boat with you

Father oh father
Guide me if you can
Or give me the chance to follow you home
I am your son but I wish I knew you
When you were young
Were you lonely as a boy

You know I'd give so much to see you now
I'd go anywhere
Pick a little stick and walk with you
Talk about the scheme of things
On a short walk with you

Father oh father
You give me just a little hope
I feel something out there reaching for me
Well here I am
Won't you take me with you
Out of this maze
And away from this place

Because it gets so cold and lonely here
I'll do anything
To sit on a little rock with you
Talk about the scheme of things
On a small rock with you

Show me show me show me the way
Before they grind me down
And bleach me grey
Send me power not to be afraid
And when I close my eyes
Let me see you once in the light

Father oh father
Heal me if you can
Is it true what they say
That life is a dream

    Amazing love has won my heart I am in awe of all You've done You gave us Jesus and with Him You freely give us everything Amazing love sets me free From all that would weigh down on me You are my strength, my help, my friend And my hope - life without end Father, my Father I am so secure in You Your perfect love drives away all my fear Father I love You for You have loved me first And I am grateful for amazing love.
