Pretty Dove

Words/Music © by Deborah Baudoin

Hey, pretty dove, pretty dove,
Pretty, pretty dove.
Here in my heart, in my home,
In my arms at last.

I knew you'd come to me someday
And we'd be together here.
I've made a room for you.
Would you like a cup of tea?

Hey, pretty dove, pretty dove...

Can you see in the future?
I see clearly in the past.
They can walk through a wall of stone
And breathe through solid glass.

Would you like a bowl of soup, my dear?
I've been waiting for you all these years.
She must never know the truth, my dear,
The tears I cried for you.

I knew you'd come to me someday
With forgiveness in your heart
And we could try again.
Kept the letters in a box.

Hey, pretty dove, pretty dove...

I can still hear her voice, my love,
I see her in your eyes.
That's a beautiful story, love,
It comes as no surprise.

You were always Papa's clever pet.
Now you're captain of a starship, yet!
She must never know my one regret--
The tears I cried for you.

I knew you'd come to me someday
And we'd try it from the start.
You're such a clever girl!
Bring the necklace and the dress.

Hey, pretty dove, pretty dove...

She knew we'd come for her, Father,
That we'd never let her go.
I'll keep her warm for you.
I will never let her go.

Hey, pretty dove, pretty dove...

She knew we'd come for her...Father...
