Daughter's Eyes
by Christopher Williams

Album: The Silence In Between

there is one small tree standing proud in the front yard of our brand new house
that's the only place my daughter can hide while i close my eyes and count
she thinks no one will find her, unless she opens up her eyes
she's hiding from something more with her eyes closed as tight as mine
on these front steps i can hear my wife singing to the song on the radio
and my daughter starts to quietly laugh as she waits for me to reach zero
the innocence and the trust that she has placed in me
should be enough to keep me here but sometimes i don't always see


who am i that i should have all this
who am i to understand
all these gifts that have been given
and this grace that pours into my hands
i had spent my whole life struggling for what i thought to be right
and in trying to succeed at that i seemed to have lost sight
wrapped in my misgivings, fighting the bottle to hide where i'd been
she was waiting up with tears in her eyes saying daddy please don't leave again


how many times can one man be delivered from the work of his own hands
how many times will i be forgiven and given another chance
like the prodigal son when he returned, i was ashamed of who i had become
i had turned my back on my family like he turned from his father to run
but the father cried tears of joy, pouring grace on the one who realized
now i feel like both the father and son, every time i look into my daughter's eyes
