November 13, 1986

College maze unbending before our eyes
Growing up in body, heart and mind
Daddy's little girl moving out so fast
Searching for the love that she knows is going to last

Welcome to your future world
The world you wondered about for so long
You've fixed your eyes on this future world
Impressions you had were oh so wrong

Apartment slums erected tall and wide
Studio rooms with holes inside
Daddy's little girl moving out so fast
Searching for the love that she knows is going to last

Welcome to your future world
The world you worried about for so long
You've fixed your eyes on this future world
Impressions you had were oh so wrong

Salaries begin at hardly a dime
Keeps you looking all the time
Daddy's little girl moving up so fast
Newspapers, resumes flying fast

Welcome to your future world
The world that amazed you for so long
You've fixed your eyes on this future world
Impressions you had were oh so wrong

Bars provide refuge on a Thursday night
You approach the bench, an incredible sight
Daddy's little girl growing up so fast
Sauntering out with a shady past

Welcome to your future world
The world you dreamt of for so long
You've fixed your eyes on this future world
Impressions you had were oh so wrong

What lies ahead and what's going right
A brighter tomorrow within your sight
But more than likely you'll lose your way
Daddy can't hold you forever, but it's okay

Welcome to your future world
The world you've endured for so long
You've fixed your eyes on this future world
Impression you had was that you belong
