A highway, a movie road
Carrying precious cargo
Breathe deep my angel
Close your eyes and slip away
Breathe deep my angel
Save you from another day

Princess, forgive me now
Trust me, don’t you make a sound
Breathe deep my angel
We can sleep away this world
Breathe deep my angel
Daddy loves his little girl

Breathe deep my angel
Close your eyes and slip away
Breathe deep my angel
I can save you from this day

You will, you will never forgive this
Still on the edge of war
So alone, so alone, a vision of heaven
You’re right on the edge

Sunrise, it’s a beautiful day
When you think of me, think of me this way

    General Commentto me this song is about a father and his very young daughter and i think it is about infanticide. something has gone very wrong and he doesnt want to face the future and he doesnt want to leave her to face it alone either. he loves her yet he feels he has to kill her to preserve her from a worse fate. the song is so gentle and so painful, i really love it.
