Moon comes up and the moon goes down
Another sleepless night, another sleepless town
But I got you, I got you

Whenever I think about what I lost
I change my mind instead to what I've still got
Because I've got you, I said I got you

You can call me papa, and ill call you baby
Don't forget your mamas my, baby too
Wherever you go, whatever you do
I will be there, I'll be there for you

Soon enough you know ill be around
But that ai'nt soon enough because it ai'nt right now
And I need you, I said I got you

When you close your eyes and you drift to sleep
From time to time I hope you run into me
I'm thinking of you, I hope you see me too

You can call me papa, and ill call you baby
Don't forget that your mamas my, baby too
Wherever you go, whatever you do
I will be there, I'll be there for you
You know I will now

You can call me papa, and ill call you baby
Don't forget that your mamas my, baby too
Wherever you go, whatever you do
I will be there, I'll be there for you
You know ill be there, I said ill be there

    General Commentthis song is absolutely gorgeous. to me its sounds like a guy who has died and is watching over his wife and child. or maybe the mother has died ("Whenever I think about what I lost
    I change my mind instead to what I've still got
    Because I've got you")
    He sounds like a father who is supporting his child. "I will be there, I'll be there for you
    You know ill be there, I said ill be there "
    I always like to think of how songs might be used in films. Maybe the protagonist takes care of an orphan or a young child with no parents.
    It's just a beautiful. very sweet. its about the love a parent [figure] feels for his child.

    General Commentthis song makes my heart ache, its so beautiful.

    simply the love of a parent down to his child.
    makes me wish i had this kind of connection with my own father.
