A daughter’s entreaty to her father to see her for who she is, invite her to stand beside him, and welcome her into his heart. Features special guest, Cheryl Prashker, on Djembe.

Lyrics

Father won’t you take me on a trip across the sea?
Nothing here is keeping me alive
All the boys from far away who come on bended knee
Only want to take me for a wife

And I want to sail across the water
Feel the waves beneath my feet
I want to soar to that horizon
And touch what lies beyond all I can see
Beyond all I can see

I can never be the son you’d hoped would come along
But I am so much more than what you see
I’m far more resourceful than any boy is strong
Won’t you take me with you and you’ll see

When we sail across the water
Feel the waves beneath our feet
When we reach that far horizon
And touch what lies beyond all I can see
Beyond all I can see

I know you care for me
And I know it’s at a cost
You look at me
I know it’s her you see
The love we lost
All that might have been if not for me
All that might have been if not for me

But if we sail across the water
Feel the waves beneath our feet
If we can reach that far horizon
Then maybe you can find that love…

If we sail across the water
Feel the waves beneath our feet
If we can reach that far horizon
Then maybe you can find that love in me

Father can’t you find that love in me?
Father can’t you find that love in me?
Find that love in me.
