Barbra Streisand - Papa can you hear me
Tekst: Alan Bergman en Marilyn Bergman / Muziek: Michel Legrand
(1984)






May the light
Of this flickering candle
Illuminate the night
The way your spirit
Illuminates my soul



Papa, can you hear me
Papa, can you see me
Papa, can you find me in the night



Papa, are you near me
Papa, can you hear me
Papa, can you help me not be frightened



Looking at the skies
I seem to see a million eyes
Which ones are yours
Where are you now that yesterday
Has waved goodbye
And closed its doors
The night is so much darker
The wind is so much colder
The world I see is so much bigger
Now that I’m alone



Papa, please forgive me
Try to understand me
Papa, don’t you know I had no choice
Can you hear me praying
Anything I’m saying
Even though the night is filled with voices



I remember ev’rything you taught me
Ev’ry book I’ve ever read
Can all the words in all the books
Help me to face what lies ahead
The trees are so much taller
And I feel so much smaller
The moon is twice as lonely
And the stars are half as bright



Papa, how I love you
Papa, how I need you
Papa, how I miss you
Kissing me good night
