  • [Chorus]
    If your eyes are the window to your soul
    Open eyes when you're cold
    If your dreams keep you warm in night
    Baby just keep 'em closed
    If your eyes are the window
    I can sneak in at night
    In your eyes I can see your soul
    Staring back into mine

    She was a beautiful rose
    From the concrete and heat she grows
    In the dark room her life was exposed
    Her picture of men, we walk on all fours
    Heart opened and heart closed
    Every now and then she Sparkles
    You can tell she was hurt by the words that she chose
    I'm thinking like Lauryn, a rose is still a rose
    Even when the door close, there grows a new one
    I told her it's some good men, she asked me if I knew one
    Her daddy left a hole because she never really knew him
    Ok sometimes from commitment, we do them
    Rocking Lou Vuitton, said she focused on the Christian
    I'm speaking to her trying to enhance her vision
    But not to be married with kids she was wishing
    Shhh, 'til your soul just listen


    She said daddy take me ice-skating
    Looking at the rear-view, life's waiting for her
    Gotta be there to support her
    Can't really wait for a court order
    She got the type of aura that's fun and vibrant
    A lot of love inside, got to help guide it
    Daddy will protect it, God will provide it
    We all will be there so your soul ain't divided
    Man, how quick she grows
    Looking like her momma but she got my toes
    I suppose it's the age that she really really need me
    A lot of girls without, they become needy
    "C'mon dad, I'm too old for the back seat
    Can you come and get me, are you coming to my track meet?"
    As she begins the race of life and love I told her
    "I can't run it for ya, but God know's I'mma coach ya"
