Dear Theodosia lyrics

[Regina Spektor]

[Verse 1: Regina Spektor]
Dear Theodosia, what to say to you?
You have my eyes, you have your mother’s name
When you came into the world, you cried
And it broke my heart
I’m dedicating every day to you
Domestic life was never quite my style
When you smile
You knock me out, I fall apart
And I thought I was so smart

[Pre-Chorus: Regina Spektor & Ben Folds]
You will come of age with our young nation
We’ll bleed and fight for you, we’ll make it right for you
If we lay a strong enough foundation
We’ll pass it on to you, we’ll give the world to you

[Chorus: Regina Spektor]
And you’ll blow us all away…
Someday, someday
Yeah, you’ll blow us all away
Someday, someday

[Bridge: Ben Folds, Regina Spektor, together]
My father wasn’t around
My father wasn’t around
I swear that I’ll be around for you
I’ll do whatever it takes
I’ll make a million mistakes
I’ll make the world safe and sound for you…

[Pre-Chorus: Regina Spektor, Ben Folds]
...Will come of age with our young nation
We’ll bleed and fight for you, we’ll make it right for you
If we lay a strong enough foundation
We’ll pass it on to you (on to you)
We’ll give the world to you (world to you)

[Outro: Regina Spektor]
And you’ll blow us all away...
Someday, someday
Yeah, you’ll blow us all away
Someday, someday.
