DEAR SOPHIE
LYRICS

Looking at you from my eyes to my heart
I knew that I loved you right from the start
You’re lying there as still as could be
You open your eyes, and you look back at me

So go on and dream as big as the sea
But don’t let the tide take you too far from me
Go on and find who you wanna be
And know that my love for you will never leave
Dear Sophie

Your whole life before you, there’s so much to know
There’s people to see and places to go
You might be a dancer, you might be a star
Well I’ll be a fan of whatever you are

So go on and dream as big as the sea
But don’t let the tide take you too far from me
Go on and find who you wanna be
And know that my love for you will never leave
Dear Sophie

One day your skies will be cloudy and grey
You’ll face some doubts and you’ll have some pain
And when that day comes, I will be here
Holding you close, just holding you, Dear Sophie
I’ll just hold you Sophie

So go on and dream as big as the sea
But don’t let the tide take you too far from me
Go on and find who you wanna be
And know that my love for you will never leave
Just know that my love for you will never leave
Dear Sophie
