I'll be nearby, baby
All the while you sleep
With you in the morning
And with you in your dreams
All my life I'll be by your side, it's crazy
You chose me to be

A captain of the ship you sail
A joker of your carousel
A keeper of the secrets you could tell
All your life you must be safe with me
I'll protect you with my dragon's teeth
You'll be big as me when you get older
For now I will lift you on my shoulders

I'll be nearby, baby
No matter how far away
My eyes were made to watch over you
All the days in all the ways
All your life I'll be by your side, it's crazy
You chose me to be

The kisses on your two skinned knees
Your secret fort up in the trees
The net underneath your trapeze
All your life you must be safe with me
And it's crazy that you're here to be
My teddy bear, my solar flare
The slinky at the top of my stairs
The amen at the end of my prayers

I'll be nearby, baby
