My Father's Eyes
Eric Clapton Lyrics


Sailing down behind the sun
Waiting for my prince to come
Praying for the healing rain
To restore my soul again

Just a toe rag on the run
How did I get here?
What have I done?
When will all my hopes arise?
How will I know him?
When I look in my father's eyes

(Look into my father's eyes)
My father's eyes
When I look in my father's eyes (look into my father's eyes)
My father's eyes

Then the light begins to shine
And I hear those ancient lullabies
And as I watch this seedling grow
Feel my heart start to overflow

Where do I find the words to say?
How do I teach him?
What do we play?
Bit by bit, I've realized
That's when I need them
That's when I need my father's eyes

(Look into my father's eyes)
My father's eyes
That's when I need my father's eyes (look into my father's eyes)
My father's eyes (yeah)

Then the jagged edge appears
Through the distant clouds of tears
I'm like a bridge that was washed away
My foundations were made of clay

As my soul slides down to die
How could I lose him?
What did I try?
Bit by bit, I've realized
That he was here with me
And I looked into my father's eyes

(Look into my father's eyes)
My father's eyes
I looked into my father's eyes (look into my father's eyes)
My father's eyes

My father's eyes (look into my father's eyes)
My father's eyes
I looked into my father's eyes (looked into my father's eyes)
My father's eyes
(Look into my father's eyes)
(Look into my father's eyes, yeah, yeah)

We Know It All

@Greg Ellis, most definitely!

Sailing down behind the sun,
Waiting for my prince to come.
Praying for the healing rain
To restore my soul again.
Just a toe rag on the run.
How did I get here?
What have I done?
When will all my hopes arise?
How will I know him?
When I look in my father´s eyes.
My father´s eyes.
When I look into my father´s eyes.
My father´s eyes.
Then the light begins to shine
And I hear those ancient lullabies.
And as I watch this seedling grow,
Feel my heart start to overflow.
Where do I find the words to say?
How do I teach him?
What do we play?
Bit by bit, I´ve realized
That´s when I need them,
That´s when I need my father´s eyes.
My father´s eyes.
That´s when I need my father´s eyes.
My father´s eyes.
Then the jagged edge appears
Through the distant clouds of tears.
I´m like a bridge that was washed away;
My foundations were made of clay.
As my soul slides down to die.
How could I lose him?
What did I try?
Bit by bit, I´ve realized
That he was here with me;
I looked into my father´s eyes.
My father´s eyes.
I looked into my father´s eyes.
My father´s eyes.
My father´s eyes.
My father´s eyes.
I looked into my father´s eyes.
My father´s eyes.
As my soul slides down to die.
How could I lose him?
What did I try?
Bit by bit, I´ve realized
That He is always with me;
I looked into my father´s eyes.
My father´s eyes.
I looked into my father´s eyes.
My father´s eyes.
My father´s eyes.
My father´s eyes.
I looked into my father´s eyes.
My father´s eyes.

I'm listening to this with tears streaming down my face . As my dad passed away this morning. He was a huge fan of Eric Clapton, as I am to. He was 66 years old and I will miss him forever.

@Matthew B-C so sorry about that. My dad was young too, he was 68. He liked Abba and we did play that at his funeral. I hope you are okay.

Matthew B-C

my dad passed 18 days ago next to me in hospital from cancer and he loved Eric Clapton as well and even wanted layla played at his funeral. But my dad was 60 and I’m 19...
