Counting my Daughters

Capo 5th Fret

Verse Em Am C Em

Chorus Em6 Am Em

Bridge C D2 Em

I don’t know the times I’ve counted,

Counted my fails,

Counted my falls.

I don’t wait for answers to questions,

Questions I’ve wondered,

Questions I’ve why’d.


I know what’s behind me
Waiting for no-man
Counting my daughters
Counting my sons
Where are they now?

I don’t know the ways I’ve fallen,

Fallen for someone

Fallen from grace

I don’t feel afraid of dark times

The night rhymes

Fear is displaced


I know where I’ve been
Waiting for no-man
Waiting for someone
Counting my daughters
Counting my sons.

I’ve moved as the wind blew,

Blown through the window.

Bluer than time.

Broken my silence

Silenced my answers,

One at a time, One at a time.


I know what’s behind me,
Counting my daughters
Counting my sons.
Questions with answers
Waiting for no-man
Waiting for someone
Waiting for me.
