I Will Take You Home

This song is by Grateful Dead and appears on the album Built to Last (1989).

Little girl lost in a forest of dreams
It's dark, old wood and it's damp with dew
Hoot owl hoots for a moment it seems
Something big and cold has got ahold of you

Just when everything gets scary
Daddy's come around for his darlin' again
Hold my hand with your little fingers
Daddy's loving arms are gonna gather you in

Ain't no way the Bogeyman can get you
You can close your eyes, the world is gonna let you
Your daddy's here and he never will forget you
I will take you home, I will take you home
Gonna carry you back home in my arms
I will take you home

Long is the road we will travel on down
Short are the legs that will struggle behind
Wish I knew for sure just where we were bound
What we will be doing, what we're gonna find

Wherever we go, there will be birds to cheer you
Flowers to color in the fields around
Wherever we go, I will be right here near you
You can't get lost when you're always found

Ain't no fog thick enough to hide you
Your daddy's gonna be right here beside you
If your fears should start to get inside you
I will take you home, I will take you home
Gonna carry you back home in my arms
I will take you home
