From The Wild Thornberrys Movie soundtrack

If you leap awake
In the mirror of a bad dream
And for a fraction of a second
You can't remember where you are
Just open your window
And follow your memory upstream
To the meadow in the mountain
Where we counted every falling star

I believe the light that shines on you
Will shine on you forever (forever)
And though I can't guarantee
There's nothing scary hiding under your bed
I'm gonna stand guard like a postcard of a golden retriever
And never leave till I leave you with a sweet dream in your bed

Chorus:
I'm gonna watch you shine
Gonna watch you grow
Gonna paint a sign
So you'll always know
As long as one and one is two
There could never be a father who loved his daughter more than I love you

Trust your intuition
It's just like goin fishin'
You cast your line and hope you get a bite

But you don't need to waste your time
Worryin' about the market place
Try to help the human race
Strugglin to survive its harshest night.

Chorus x2

saw him do a version of this on some award show...MTV? dunno had a bit of energy to it when I saw him do it, but now listening to this middle of the road pap, the recorded version seems to have sucked what little soul it had out if it. A good advertisement for the use of contraception.

And may I also take this moment to remind daughters and sons everywhere to tell your parents that you love them. I'm so so so glad I told my dad many times how much I love him. He died young (49) and suddenly, so there was no last chance. Talk to your parents while you can.
The last words I ever spoke to my dad before they carted him off to surgery and his death was "I LOVE YOU DAD" He died too young as well thanks to the fucked up emergency surgery procedure of the hospital.
Okay, yeah it\'s sentimental, and yeah it reminds us that we should be nice to our parents once in a while, but it\'s still a crappy song.
Who keeps giving these sucky songs 10\"s? :frustrated:
Sweet and awesome! :p

Yeah, I spose so. I probably shouldn\'t post when I have a headache.
what a sweet song. I can see him singing it as a lullaby. Don\'t take offense, it\'s what every father, and mother too by the way, thinks about their child.
I have a daughter too, and that\'s why it pisses me off. Why should I believe that he loves his daughter more than I love mine? I\'m glad he feels that way, but I beg to differ!
Not in the same class as his best work, but I\'m the father of a beautiful, sweet, wonderful daughter so I love it! :)
Embarrassingly sappy. Yuck.
Maybe a little cheesy but I have 2 daughters so this kinda pulls at the old heart strings. Keep playing it! :clap: :) :clap:
