Heaven held in eyes © (poem/lyrics)

There’s a dam holding back a great river

But it’s hidden so nobody sees

The water weighs heavy with dejection

If it breaks it will fill up a sea

.

It’ll never overflow, cause the guardian she’s promised to keep it;

Nobody’ll interfere, cause the guardian’s vowed not to allow it.

And on the surface, there’s a shining blue,

Heaven held in eyes;

And my heart breaks, every time I take,

a moment to look at the view.

.

How can I tell her, that it’s really over,

– Daddy’s never coming back.

.

If you listen hard you’ll hear the thunder;

If you listen hard you’ll hear the crack

Of a storm, blowing from the past.

There’s a little girl who plays

By the dam of a river;

Her eyes are so blue

You’d never believe there’s a danger.

.

Every day she plays a silly game

Pretending to be someone new,

Giggling and having fun,

Living life, pretending…

She cannot hear the rumble,

Water making the dam crumble

And on the surface, there’s a shining blue,

Heaven held in eyes;

And my heart breaks, every time I take,

a moment to look at the view.

.

How can I tell her, that it’s really over,

– Daddy’s never coming back.

.

If you listen hard you’ll hear the thunder;

If you listen hard you’ll hear the crack

Of a storm, blowing from the past.

And on the surface, there’s a shining blue,

Heaven held in eyes;

And my heart breaks, every time I take,

a moment to look at the view.

.

How can I tell her, that it’s really over,

– Daddy’s never coming back.

.

If you listen hard you’ll hear the thunder;

If you listen hard you’ll hear the crack

Of a storm, blowing from the past.
