Strum A C

[Verse 1]
 F   C/E          Dm7         G   C
If you leap awake in the mirror of a bad dream
          D7 (no top E) C          C/B            G         Am
And for a fraction of a second you can't remember where you are
               F  C/E     Dm7         G      C
Just open your window and follow your memory upstream
       D7 (no top E) C                 C/B           G       Am
To the meadow in the mountain where we counted every falling star
            F                C/E          Dm7         G   C
I believe a light that shines on you will shine on you forever
             D7 (no top E) C                 C/B
And though I can’t guarantee there’s nothing scary
       G          Am
hiding under your bed
          F     C/E          Dm7           G        C
I'm gonna stand guard like a postcard of a Golden Retriever
          D7 (no top E) C               C/B        G        Am
And never leave ‘til I leave you with a sweet dream in your bed

[Chorus]
C        F
  I'm gonna watch you shine
  C
Gonna watch you grow
       F
Gonna paint a sign
    C
So you'll always know
   F       C
As long as one and one is two
F       C          C/D
  There could never be a father
              Am                 G      Am
Who loved his daughter more than I love you

[Verse 2]
C
Trust your intuition

It’s just like goin’ fishin’

    D7(no top E)  C   C/B       G     Am
You cast your line and hope you get a bite
                     F    C/E    Dm7  G
But you don’t need to waste your time
C
 Worryin’ about the market place

Try to help the human race
D7(no top E)C      C/B     G        Am
 Struggling to survive its harshest night

[Interlude] F G |Am|F G |Am|F G |Am|F G |Am|F G |

[Chorus]
C        F
  I'm gonna watch you shine
  C
Gonna watch you grow
       F
Gonna paint a sign
    C
So you'll always know
   F       C
As long as one and one is two
F       C          C/D
  There could never be a father
              Am                 G      Am
Who loved his daughter more than I love you
