[Chorus:]
I watch you sleeping little angel face
And on behalf of the human race
Welcome to this crazy place

I watch you sleeping innocent and free
I don't know what your dreams may be
You don't know what you mean to me

You have never heard thunder
You have never seen the rain
But you can still feel the wonder
You can still feel the pain

And sometimes you look at me
So wise and so sure
I could easily believe you have been here before

[Chorus]

I won't be here forever
But as long as I'm around
I promise you I will never let you down
To help make a world you can feel worthy of
I will teach you to fly on the wings of my love

I watch you sleeping brave and unaware
You don't know yet so you don't care
I want you to know it's hard out there

[Chorus]

I watch you sleeping (x6)
