"Daughter" as written by and Vienna Teng....
well it's you and it's me
me with a drink in my hand
the ice is tinkling like a wind chime
and late afternoon settles over the land
and you're talking about things
interesting just slightly
and things that matter too much
to say any way but lightly

did you know you're so beautiful
on the edge of summer
that years from now
I'll cry to remember
how very close you were
knowing this will I reach for you
knowing this will I reach for you
the way you want me to

well it's time to be wise
wise in the ways of the heart
to come out from under the covers
this voluntary state of apart
from the faces, oasis
in this Sahara of sorrow
these graces that hold me
it's from you that I borrow

    General CommentIt's beautiful when the music sounds like the idea portrayed in the lyrics.
    Scene: A mother and a daugher are sitting across a table from each other, probably early summer, and there's an issue like "the elephant in the middle of the room". It can't be ignored. However, the mother doesn't feel like she can confront her daughter about her problems, which sound like self-image problems because the mother comes on to say something about how her daughter is as beautiful as summer. She's saying to her daughter how they'll look back on their hardships and cry but also love because it brought them closer together, and it won't change their love it'll only bring them stronger.

    The second verse goes on probably five or ten years down the road, and she's talking about her love life problems with her mother and comparing them to her own, and they're seeing similarities in themselves more than they thought they had.
