TSMSS: Somewhere in the World

My daughter, Crunchy, is only 5. But she is in love. With MC. They met last year when they rode the same bus to preschool. She almost got kicked off the bus because she insisted on giving MC a hug before she got off the bus. And another time, she threw a fit (and a kick) because they wouldn't let her sit next to MC. She even told me they "practiced dated". But, after preschool, they went separate ways. Until last week. Just in time for Valentine's Day, she announced MC was back and in her class. The first picture is one Crunchy drew. She said it is her and MC after they won a dance competition. (Do you see the trophies?) The next one is Crunchy and MC. We ran into his family at Wal-Mart tonight. And then this song went through my head.

The only video I could find was a man singing and playing piano. The song is Wayne Watson's Somewhere in the World.

Somewhere in the world today
A little girl will go out ot play
All dressed up in mama's clothes
At least the way that I suppose it goes
Somewhere in the world tonight
Before she reaches to turn out the light
She'll be prayin' from a tender heart
A simple prayer that's a work of art

And I don't even know her name
But I'm prayin' for her just the same
That the Lord will write His name upon her heart
Cause somewhere in the course of this life
A little boy will need a godly wife
So hold on to Jesus, baby, whereever you are

Somewhere in the world out there
That little girl's learnin' how to care
She's pickin' up her mamas charms
Or maybe, swigin' around in her daddy's arms
Somewhere in the world to be
Through the future's not real clear to me
Theirs could be a tender love
Grounded in eternal love above
