Looking out my window
An angel in robes appeared and nearly pulled me apart
A million miles of freedom, a million miles of road,
But I still don't know where to start

She wrote her number down
And she gave it to me
They had to scrape me off the floor
In this transient town, waiters and dealers
Trying to get their foot in the door

That night I called her and she said
"Daddy daddy daddy, all my life
I've been trying to find my place in the world"
And I said to her
"Baby baby babe, I got all night to listen to the heart of a girl"

I can see the time drippin' down the clock,
We've been trying to hear that ancient refrain
It's the one that knows just when our heads are down
And reminds us of the place from where we came
Where we came

"Daddy daddy daddy, all my life
I've been trying to find my place in this world"
"Baby baby babe, I got all night to listen to the heart of a girl"

What happened here, what is this world?
It's too far from the heart of a girl
A ripple in the water
From the drop of a pearl
I'm on the shore waitin'
For the heart of a girl

Many doors, knock on one
Standin' still, time is raging
Staring down the mouth of a hundred thousand guns
And you're still here, you're still here

I believe that we never have to be alone
Yes I believe it's just around the bend
You can hold it in
Or you can scream it on a microphone
There is no end (there is no end)
There is no end (there is no end)

And, deep in the night, I feel the presence
Of something that was long ago told to me
There is a hand, guiding the river
The river to wide open sea
And deep in my heart, in and again
On any mountain, no I'm not afraid
Standing on stone, you stand beside me
And honor the plans that were made
