Could not have known what she meant to me
She would have stayed if she'd only seen
The world around me needed her to spin
A puzzles' whole when all the shapes fit in
A falcon soars through a turquoise sky
Released her heart-strings so she could fly
Now she roams those alabaster Peaks
I hope she found what she'd hoped to see

Refrain; Oh it's been so long
I had to be so strong
Nothins' right , but nothins' wrong
It's just the way to sing her song

She kept the hurt buried deep inside
I might have known if she'd only cried
But in her youth she learned at such a cost
Her mamma's love was'nt all she'd lost

So many roads make it easy to leave
The blowin winds take you off on a
But then the road finally comes to an end
Will you quit or maybe start again
repeat Refrain
