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
