Father And Daughter Lyrics - Paul Simon

Review The Song (70)



If you leap awake in the mirror of a bad dream
And for a fraction of a second you can't remember where you are
Just open your window and follow your memory upstream
To the meadow in the mountain where we counted every falling star

I believe a light that shines on you will shine on you forever
And though I can't guarantee there's nothing scary hiding under your bed
I'm gonna stand guard like a postcard of a Golden Retriever
And never leave 'til I leave you with a sweet dream in your head

[Chorus:]
I'm gonna watch you shine
Gonna watch you grow
Gonna paint a sign
So you'll always know
As long as one and one is two
There could never be a father
Who loved his daughter more than I love you

Trust your intuition
It's just like goin' fishin'
You cast your line and hope you get a bite
But you don't need to waste your time
Worryin' about the market place
Try to help the human race
Struggling to survive its harshest night

[Chorus 2x]

My little girl is getting married... | Reviewer: Neil Floyd | 5/7/13

I heard this for the first time today and I've played it over and over. I have been searching for a song for my daughters wedding and this is it!! Thank you Paul... you have given me a treasure and something I can share with my little girl.

My Daughter | Reviewer: Father | 2/10/13

This is the first time I hear this song. I have a 33-yr old daughter who I have not seen since she was two. The song breaks me because I did not do any of the things in the song. I do not know how or if I can to make it up for her.

My Dad | Reviewer: Jen | 1/21/13

When i first heard this song i cryed. My dad and I have reconnected after 35 years and he is all of this song. I had a step dad for the first thirty five years of my life, him and i did not have that father daughter relationship. When i met my dad for the my dad for the first time we hit it off, and our relationship has only grown stronger. I am his lil girl and i LOVE it.

Our Song | Reviewer: Dave | 11/29/12

I heard this song on the radio when my wife was pregnant. As soon as I heard it I thought, if I have a girl I am going to play this for her forever. Well tonight we just sang it again and she is 8 years old. I've been singing this to her since she was born and now we sing it together. She is an amazing little girl and I love our special bond we have!

Just like goin' fishin' | Reviewer: Karl | 10/13/12

My daughter painted a picture of her and I fishing a few weeks ago. We were blessed to go fishing a few days ago. She's 9 now, but already trusting her intuition, wouldn't even let me bait her hook. Independent or stubborn, she'll go far. Never really heard that line until tonight...

It's our jobs as 'daddy' to make sure our daughters leave our care with a toolbox to face the life ahead with confidence, not baggage to drag her down in life. Love is a verb, an action, DO IT!


Never be a father... | Reviewer: E's Mom | 6/17/12

Never heard this song until tonight. My 29 year old daughter played it for her father and asked him to dance as we were leaving her home tonight...father's day 2012. Very emotional and touching. There will never be a father loves a daughter...enough said.

My parents divorce.... | Reviewer: Tamara | 3/16/12

I actually have never heard of this song since last night... My dad was writting things down to put on my Senior page and he wrote the chorus to this song "I'm gonna watch you shine
Gonna watch you grow
Gonna paint a sign
So you'll always know
As long as one and one is two
There could never be a father
Who loved his daughter more than I love you" I cried... Just thinking of how much I love my dad, and everything he has done for me... He was who I leaned on to make it through my mom and dads divorce, everyday he told me he loved me and that although we couldn't bring her back he knows she loves me unconditionally... The night my mom packed her bags to leave, my dad promised me that no matter what I do or where I go tat he would always be one step behind me, and that he would never leave me. Now only 1 1/2 more months to go in my senior year I can't help but think that pretty soon i'll be on my own... Out of the house living my own life, but it will be okay because I know what where ever I go my dad will ALWAYS be there for me... Iloveyou dad! Your the best father any daughter could ask for!

For My daughter | Reviewer: Tshepo Jones | 1/15/12

I have a six months old daughter and I love her with all my heart. I just have a problem with her mother and I am not happy with her. I am afraid every day that if I leave IF will lose my daughter. This song just keeps me strong because I want to see her development till she gets married.

my dad | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/8/12

i lost my dad 6 years ago just 3 months after my mum. Even though I am not young I felt like a child when my dad died. He was always there for me. everything from catching a spider to helping me raise my son. I have never felt so safe and cared for since he is gone. God bless you dad and mum

I cry every time I hear this song! | Reviewer: Julie | 10/8/11

This is the song my dad picked for us to dance to at our wedding and I can't really think about that moment or this song without crying. It's so sweet and I think this song just speaks volumes of how my dad (and mom) raised my brother and me.

my wedding | Reviewer: Stacy | 6/1/11

I, thankfully, still have my father. We had a strained relationship while I was growing up though. My sister was the golden child and I was the black sheep. My father is the most amazing person I have ever met and all I ever wanted to do was make him happy, although I never thought that I had succeeded. When I was planning my wedding reception, we were trying to figure out a song to dance to. My dad convinced me to let him pick a song and surprise me. This is the song he picked. I have never felt as loved as I did at that moment and haven't doubted it since. I still tear up every time I hear it. This is an absolutely amazing song.
