Strum a C chord
Verse 1
If you l[F]eap [C/E]awake in the [Dm7]mirror of a [G]bad [C]dream
And for a [D7]fraction of a [C]second you [C/B]can't remember [G]where you [Am]are
Just open your [F]win[C/E]dow and [Dm7]follow your [G]memory [C]upstream
To the [D7]meadow in the [C]mountain where we [C/B]counted every [G]falling [Am]star
I believe a [F]light that shines[C/E] on you will [Dm7]shine on you[G] for[C]ever
And though I [D7]can’t guarante[C]e there’s nothing [C/B]scary
hiding [G]under your [Am]bed
I'm gonna [F]stand [C/E]guard like a [Dm7]postcard of a [G]Golden Re[C]triever
And never [D7]leave ‘til I l[C]eave you with a [C/B]sweet dream[G] in your [Am]bed

Chorus
[C] I'm gonna watch you [F]shine
Gonna watch you [C]grow
Gonna paint a [F]sign
So you'll always [C]know
As long as[F] one and one is two[C]-ooo
[F] There could [C]never be a [C/D]father
Who loved his [Am]daughter more than [G]I love [Am]you
Verse 2
[C] Trust your intuition
It’s just like goin’ fishin’
You [D7]cast your line[C] and[C/B] hope you [G]get a [Am]bite
But you don’t need to[F] wast[C/E]e your [Dm7]time[G]
[C] Worryin’ about the market place
Try to help the human race
[D7] Struggling [C]to surv[C/B]ive its [G]harshest [Am]night
