LYRICS

Girl:
Daddy, I keep having a bad dream
It’s dark outside and bad guys are chasing me

Father:
Let me put my arms around you
Protect you from harm they want to do
Tomorrow I’ll be gone for a little bit
I’ll fight so that we won’t get hit

Girl:
I’ll wait for you in this shelter

Father:
I’ll keep my girl out of danger

Father, Girl:
Oh, when can we go back to our home, the life we know
Stop our cries, who hears our plight?

CHORUS
Girl:
Make this go away now
Daddy, find a way out
I don’t want them to hurt us
I trust you to protect us

Daddy:
My sweet, I will protect you
So now I need to leave You
It’s always for you that I fight
So you sleep sound tonight

VERSE II

Girl/Father Harmony:
I used to dream of a future bright
Can I go back to see the light?
The fear that you feel on this cold floor
This shelter won’t be home anymore

I used to be scared when you’d leave
But now I know you’re fighting just for me
I’m the one who hates to leave you
But I’m the one who has to see this through

Oh, when can we go back to our home, the life we know
Stop our cries, who hears our plight?

CHORUS
Girl:
Make this go away now
Daddy, find a way out
I don’t want them to hurt us
I trust you to protect us

Father:
My sweet, I will protect you
So now I need to leave you
It’s always for you that I fight
So you sleep sound tonight

BRIDGE
Girl: For too long, I wanted this to end
Father: I’ll be back soon, I just can’t tell you when
So now I’ll go, put on my uniform
And once and for all, you’ll feel safe and warm

MUSICAL BREAK

VERSE III

Girl:
Daddy, is the nightmare over?
You’re back so soon, and it’s just tomorrow

Daddy:
Let me put my arms around you
Girl: Protect me from harm they want to do?

Daddy: Turns out I won’t be gone for a little bit
They signed a deal.

Girl:
So we won’t get hit
Can we now leave this shelter?

Daddy:
I can’t tell her we’re still in danger

Daddy:
Oh, when can we go back to our home, the life we know
Stop our cries, who hears our plight?

Make this go away now
Who will find a way out?
I know they want to hurt us
God, who will protect us?
