Papa can you hear me?

My dear cousin post this video of Charlotte Chruch on my profile. One amazing song by a truly talented woman. But since I have such adoration in words, I am here to post the lyric. It has touched the very inside of me. "Papa, Can You Hear Me?" is a 1983 song, performed by Barbra Streisand for the film Yentl. The song was composed by Michel Legrand, with lyrics by Alan Bergman and Marilyn Bergman.

Oh God 
May the light,
Illuminate the night, the way your spirit illuminates my soul
Papa, can you hear me? 
Papa, can you see me? 
Papa, can you find me in the night? 
Papa, are you near me? 
Papa, can you hear me? 
Papa, can you help me not be frightened? 
Looking at the skies, I seem to see a million eyes 
Which ones are yours? 
Where are you now that yesterday 
Has waved goodbye and closed its door? 
The night is so much darker, 
The wind is so much colder 
The world I see is so much bigger 
Now that I'm alone 
Papa, please forgive me 
Try to understand me 
Papa, don't you know I had no choice? 
Can you hear me praying, 
Anything I'm saying, 
Even though the night is filled with voices? 
I remember ev'rything you taught me 
Ev'ry book I've ever read 
Can all the words in all the books 
Help me to face what lies ahead? 
The trees are so much taller 
And I feel so much smaller 
The moon is twice as lonely 
And the stars are half as bright 
Papa, how I love you 
Papa, how I need you 
Papa, how I miss you 
Kissing me goodnight...
