Little One
Little One
© 1997 Lyrics & Music by Bob Bentley
Key: C/C#

Verse One:
Little one there's lots to learn along the way,
it really fascinates me watching you each day
You are too young yet to be looking far ahead
But I'm old enough to wonder as you climb the stairs to bed

Verse Two:
I sometimes watch you as you stare into space,
I try to read your mind by the look upon your face
Oh the joy there when all the world is good
Hurt and frustration when you're misunderstood

We'll be beside you, we'll be beside you
To help and guide you
All the way

Verse Three:
Little one those blue eyes melt my soul and take my breath away
But you don't realise the times we hope and pray
Nothing's gonna break that heart or cause you to feel pain
Knowing only too well, it's all in the game

The day will come when you will go out on your own
All too soon that moment will be near
Little one don't forget there'll always be a home
And when you call us we will hear, we will hear

We'll be beside you, we'll be beside you
To love and guide you
All the way

Verse Four:
This world is full of traps for you, it's not an easy place
Those you cannot trust, things you wont want to face
Through these years ahead, there's one thing you must know
Little one we'll be there, wherever you may go

We'll be beside you, we'll be beside you
To love and guide you
All the way, all the way

My Little One

Oh my Little One
