Lyrics by Maria Mendes  

Further down than your tears
I hear mama singing a song
Lullabye of love telling you to go to bed
You don’t wanna go
But I will be there
Holding tight your hand in mine
Holding tight your hand in mine

Further down than your smile
Shades and vaults are dancing freely,
Coloring your eyes with golden memories of life
You’re way young to know
But I will be there
Holding tight your hand in mine
Holding tight your hand in mine

And each day you grow strong and bright
Caring in your laugh the childish joy of freedom
Never too young to know how you’ve touched life always
And each time you’ve held so tight my hand in yours

Further down than your eyes
I see dreams and stories untold
Where you’ll play a role on a journey through the world
You’ll be thrill to go and I will be there
Holding tight your hand in mine
Holding tight your hand in mine
