Kayah – For My Son lyrics

Before I knew that you were coming
I was allready waiting

In my bedroom window every night
I would burn a candle bright
Like the light on a stormy sea
So you would come straight to me
Find me Before

I knew you would come
I loved you as the only one
In everyone I looked for you
Before I even knew

Before I knew that you would arrive
I could hear your gentle steps outside

And when darkness fell all around
When evil came without a sound
A star of night mercifully sent me
My wish for all to see
So you could be loved here
My darling

Before I knew you would come
I could hear your gentle steps outside
