Lyrics

We thought you'd be here by now
Your mother and I
We're praying through our tears that somehow
We might hear your sweet cry

Have we waited too long?
It's getting harder to be strong
Is there something we've done wrong?

But if you like dancing
I'll make it rain rhythm, and rhyme, and melodies, child
And if you like dreaming
Your mother will make your imagination run wild
Somehow, we thought you'd be here by now

We have a room just for you upstairs
It's right down the hall
So we'll be close should you ever get scared
We'll come when you call
It's a room full of stories
Waiting to be told
Longing to behold

And if you like laughing
I'll paint you a circus of smiles and Ferris wheels, dear
And if you like living
Your mother will fly you to worlds both far and near
Somehow...

I never knew the silence could make me so deaf
I never knew that I could miss someone I've never met
Miss someone I haven't met yet

But if you like dancing
I'll make it rain rhythm, and rhyme, and melodies, child
And if you like dreaming
Your mother will make your imagination run wild
And if you like laughing
And if you like living
And if you like dancing and dreaming and living, child

Well, we'll be waiting
Yeah, we'll be waiting
