I have seen it, I have seen it in my father's eyes,
I have seen it, I have seen it in my father's eyes,
I have heard it, I have heard it in my father's voice,
It's been a hard life, a hard fight, and all of the things that he wanted
Are in his hand, but silver would not betray what's written in the sand,
And a wall will not keep his people from the Promised Land

And I will never believe that the same thing could happen to me,
And I will never believe I'll give up on the dreams that I see
In my father's eyes, my father's eyes

I will go now, I will go now to my father's house,
I will show him, I will show him that I'm strong enough,
And there's a bright light, a great light that's shining around him
For now he has found a son, who will give to the world
The work he has begun, who will open the door to reveal
The chosen one

And I will never believe that the same thing could happen to me,
And I will never believe I'd give up on the dreams that I see
In my father's eyes,
In my father's eyes, in my father's eyes

And I will never believe that the same thing is happening to me,
And I will never believe I'd give up on the dreams that I've seen
In my father's eyes, in my father's eyes, my father's eyes

I have seen it, I have seen it in my father's eyes.
