about

On watching over a precious foster daughter while she was sleeping. I think these sentiments relate to every parent, since none of us knows how long our little ones will be in our care.

lyrics

Watch Over You
by Jeremy Peyton & Matthew Ball, copyright 2012


Staring at you while you dream I can’t help but feel uneasy
It’s just that I
Never in my wildest dreams thought that you’d look up to me
And tell me how could you be prepared
For all of the pain that’s waiting out there
When all that I can do is

Watch over you while you sleep
Watch over you ‘til you leave

I am flattered but I fear I’ve been overestimated
I’m just a man
Struggling with his own importance What could I teach you?
And how could I ever touch your life
Given our fleeting chance in time
And all that I can do is

Watch over you while you sleep
Watch over you ‘til you leave

Although you’re much too young to know
I can speak deep into your soul
So when you’re drowning in life’s throws
You’ll hear a song of love and hope
And all that I can pray is

Watch over you while you sleep
Watch over you when you leave
