In the Blink of an Eye


My daughter is 20? Stop! No way!
Wasn't it yesterday that she was just born?
She changed my whole life in the blink of an eye.
It can't be possible that 20 years have gone by!

I sang to her lullabies every night till she slept.
I held her and kissed her every moment I could.
She could make me smile in the blink of an eye.
It can't be possible that 20 years have gone by!

Growing up she quiet her feelings tucked inside.
But she was betrayed by the melodies that rose from her lips.
Because her songs told the truth in the blink of an eye.
It can't be possible that 20 years have gone by!

Once upon a time she needed me always.
Now it is I who longs for her voice and her smile.
She became an adult in the blink of an eye
It can't be possible that 20 years have gone by!

I've often told her life is a ride that goes up and goes down.
So live life to the fullest, hold nothing back.
These moments in life they fly by, in the blink of an eye.
It just can't be possible that 20 years have gone by!
