Jane Siberry – Song To My Father lyrics

Flashes of warmth
Golden summers
Sparkling winters

Walking with Daddy on Sundays
Hand in hand - heart in heart
Hand in hand - heart in heart

Lift me up on the pony again, Daddy
Don't leave me alone in the dark
Swing me on your leg again

Daddy - why did they take the horse to the factory?
Dry your tears and you can watch t.v.
With your Mommy and me
Between Mommy and me

I know it's late, Daddy
But I can't get to sleep
I'm sorry that I was so bad today
I'm sorry that I made you so mad today
Come tuck me in again, okay

Bubbles and squeak?
I hear you Daddy
Daddy? I want to be your little girl again

In the linden tree
In the apple tree
My book, my blue dog and me
Watching the leaves making shadows
On the next page

Well, Daddy - I'm a big girl now
And do you love me as much?
I can tie my own shoelaces now
But I still need you
I know a lot more answers now
But I still need you
I can stand on my own feet now
But I still love you

And Daddy...
I want to be your little girl again
