I watch you sleep
I listen to you breathe
You made it through one more day
Out of harms way
I feel so helpless
Sometimes I wanna cry
Tomorrow scares me to death
So I hit my knees beside the bed

If I pray hard enough
If luck stays with us
If I have just enough faith
If wishes really do come true
And I spend all of mine on you
Maybe you'll be safe

You'll chase a dream
You'll find yourself
You're bound to win a few
You'll learn to lose
I promise to
Teach you everything I know
I'll make mistakes
But I'll do my best
I'll ask God to do the rest

(Repeat Chorus)

When the world leads you
In your own direction
Far away from me

(Repeat Chorus)

Maybe you'll be safe
You'll be safe
