lyrics

Teenage Daughter

cotton balls and tumbleweeds
are rolling down the street
and they're shining like a snowflake shining
and I'm floating on the breeze
through the tinsel covered trees
towards a bright and blurry blinding...
sunday morning coming down
like a redwood to the ground
as the wind whips the waves upon the water
and I see her in my mind
like a seagull in the sky my long lost teenage daughter

her hair is hanging down in braids
the sun it shines behind her face
like a yellow green and violet morning
and she's calling out my name
just as sure as I'm awake
just as the day is dawning
and though I know I've done my best
I just can't keep up with the rest
stranded on the highway of this lifetime
now you know that I'm n good
I've told you every way I could
the angel that I've come to know as mine
my teenage daughter
my teenage daughter

sunday morning coming down
like a redwood to the ground
as the wind whips the waves upon the water
and I see her in my mind
before I open up my eyes
the angel that I've come to know as mine
my teenage daughter
my teenage daughter
