Papa, Can You Hear Me? Lyrics - Nina Simone



Review The Song (0)


Papa, can you hear me?
Papa, can you see me?
Papa, can you find me in the night?

Papa, are you near me?
Papa, can you hear me?
Papa, can you help me not be frightened?

Looking at the skies
I seem to see a million eyes
which ones are yours?

Where are you now
that yesterday has waved goodbye
and closed its doors?

The night is so much darker
The wind is so much colder
The world I see is so much bigger
now that I am alone

Papa, please forgive me
I know you understand me
Papa, don't you know
I had no choice?
Oh...

Can you hear me prayin'?
Anything I'm sayin'?
Even though the night is filled with voices

I remember everything thing
you taught me
every book I ever read

Can all the words,
and all the music
help me to face
what lies ahead?

The trees are so much taller
and I feel so much smaller
The moon is twice as lonely
and the stars are half as bright

Daddy, how I love you
Daddy, how I need you
Daddy, how I miss you
kissing me goodnight

Nina Simone
