How Many Sleeps

 How many sleeps ‘till I see you again
 How many waves on the shore
 How many wishes and how many prayers
 Before you are with me once more
 I’ll kiss you goodnight
 And I’ll promise to write
 And I’ll see you very soon
 We’ll be looking at the same moon
 I will be there when you call
 And the moment is forever
 Oh, Amy Rose,
 I love you most of all.

 Lions and tigers and crocodile tears
 Things that go bump in the night
 I’ll be your hero and dry all your tears
 Drive all your fears out of sight
 And how do you find it’s so easy to leave me
 Alone inside my room
 I will see you in the same stars
 I will hold your face, oh
 And the moment is forever
 My Amy Rose
 This is your daddy’s vow.

 I will meet you at the kissing gate
 Remember the fish on the stone
 I will meet you down at Amy’s barn
 And you will never be alone
 You will never be alone.

 How many sleeps ‘till I see you again
 How many rays in the sun
 Daddy I love you as long as I live
 Long as a river may run
 How many colours we see in the rainbow
 And chase that red balloon
 Are we looking at the same moon
 We will never be apart
 And the moment is forever
 My Amy Rose
 I live inside your heart.

 I will meet you at the kissing gate
 Remember the fish on the stone
 I will meet you down at Amy’s barn
 And you will never be alone

 And whether she’s running through the yellow fields
 Or barefoot on the stones
 I will meet you down at Amy’s barn
 And you will never be alone
 You will never be alone.
 No, not alone, Amy.
