My Father's Eyes
Eric Clapton
Sailing down behind the sun
Waiting for my prince to come
Praying for the healing rain
To restore my soul again

Just a toerag on the run
How did I get here?
What have I done?
When will all my hopes arise?
How will I know him?
When I look in my father's eyes
My father's eyes
When I look in my father's eyes
My father's eyes
