She said "daddy who will I marry when my childhood days are done? Will you help me find someone who'll protect me when your gone? And did Jesus see an angel when he rose on Easter morn? Tell me what kind of king would wear a crown of thorns?"

Mamma, what does a grown-up do? How will I know when I'm grown? What do I say when I'm too tired to pray and the days are getting long? And why would a father run, when he sees his child is lost? And tell me what kind of king would wear a crown of thorns?

It only seems like this morning that you were just a baby; tiny and content with simple things. Now so many questions in need of good answers; may your prayers lift you up on eagles wings.

Tell me, how do you get to heaven? And does it hurt to leave this place? When I look into God's eyes will He let me touch His face? And will Jesus come to find me, when I'm the one who's lost? And tell me what kind of king, tell me what kind of king? Would abandon heavens light for a crown of thorns?
