MY FATHER'S EYES (Livingston Taylor) Livingston Taylor - 1991 My father stands before me In a place that's his alone I'm guided to the future I have the world to own. I stand up and I'm counted A thousand miles from home Why can I see forever In my father's eyes? My father sits before me His hands upon his chin His fingers touch his lips Until my story ends. Patiently we get it straight The whos, the whens, the whys... Truth ever protected In my father's eyes. My father's eyes... My father's hands... Oh, Daddy quickly pick me up When will I be a man? When will I live long enough To make somebody fly? When will the mirror show me My father's eyes? My father's resting in a chair In a long, cold Winter sun He falls into a restless sleep Still itching for the run. The arms are thin And the movement slow But there'll be one more try Strength has another measure In my father's eyes. My father's eyes My father's hands Oh, Daddy quickly pick me up When will I be a man? When will I live long enough To make somebody fly? When will the mirror show me My father's eyes?
