Daddy Can You See Me

This song is by Anita Cochran and appears on the album Back To You (1997).

Momma gives birth to a little child,
Daddy waits, with a patient smile.
They tell him what he's brought into the world,
They all can tell she'll be a daddy's girl.

He hears a voice as she starts to cry,
He looks through the window tears fall from his eyes,
Overwhelmed with the thoughts of the day,
He swears he hears her say

Daddy can you see me?
Daddy can you hear the words I say?
I've got your hands
Your eyes and your hair
And this thing you call a teddy bear.
I'll do what I can to make you proud,
Daddy can you see me now?

He takes me fishing like I'm one of the guys
No one can break these ties that bind.
We've got a bond that's precious and dear,
And it's stayed the same through all these years.

As I get older and time goes by,
He's got a shoulder if I need to cry,
And when I think that I'm going O.K.,
I look at him and say

Daddy can you see me?
Daddy can you hear the words I say?
I've got your hands
Your eyes and your hair
And I still hold on to my teddy bear.
I'll do what I can to make you proud,
Daddy can you see me now?

I look to the heavens for some kind of sign,
For you to tell me that I'm doing fine.
And every night when I kneel down to pray,
I wonder if you hear me say

Daddy can you see me?
Daddy can you hear the words I say?
My life has changed since you went away
And I need to know if I'm doing O.K.
I've done all I can to make you proud
Daddy can you see me now?

Oh I've done all I can to make you proud,
Daddy can you see me now?
