Lyrics Edit

Chorus:
How could I have known my words would have such power?
How could I have known a curse would be my cry?
How could I have known misfortune she'd acquire?
How could I have known such magic was nearby?


Verse 1:
I only wanted a daughter, who would treat me the way I treated her,
I only wanted a daughter who would let me be a friend to her.
Kiss me on the cheek and say “Good morning”,
Maybe bring me a flower from the fields
Maybe stay and share the day together.
Surely she must know how it hurts me so, surely she must know the way I feel.


Verse 2:
See how she sleeps away the daylight, off she runs, a child of the night,
Hastens into the dark of evening, to think where she might go causes me fright.
Maybe she has found some kind of trouble,
Maybe evil ways have found her too,
Maybe she has found a secret lover
Surely she must know how it hurts me so, surely she must know what I go through.


Verse 3:
See how I wept beside the water, see how my heart was sorely agonized
See how baneful magic cursed my daughter, I wish somehow I would have realized.
"Life's too short to sleep away the daylight",
Words I spoke beside a magic pool,
Words that put her into daytime slumber.
How could I have been in such oblivion, how could I have been such a fool?


Final Chorus:
How could I have known my words would have such power?
How could I have known a curse would be my cry?
How could I have known misfortune she’d acquire?
How could I have known such magic was nearby?
How could I have known that I would be the charmer,
To condemn her to the shadows of the night.
