Papa, Can You Hear Me? Lyrics

Artist: Nina Simone
Album: Single Woman

papa, can you hear me?
papa, can you see me?
papa, can you find me in the night?
papa, are you near me?
papa, can you hear me?
papa, can you help me not be frightened?

looking at the skies i see a million eyes
which ones are yours?
where are you now
that yesterday has waved goodbye
and closed it's doors

the night is so much darker
the wind is so much colder
the world is so much bigger
now that i am alone

papa, please forgive me
i know you understand me
papa, don't you know i had no chose?
oh, can you hear me prayin'?
anything i'm sayin'?

even though the night is filled with voices
i remember everything you ever
taught me
evey book i've ever read
can all the words,
all the music help me face what's ahead?

the trees are so much taller
i feel so much smaller
the moon is twice as lonely
and the stars are half as bright

daddy, how i love you
daddy, how i need you
daddy, how i miss you
kissing me goodnight
