Words have been said more times than I can count
and my feelings are nothing new, they assure me
They’ve heard it all before, the pain, the grief
The hollow sound of disappearance.
But how else can I sing about a real woman?
The one who kept the world at bay
So her husband could keep his innocence?
She loved fiercely and treated justly
She left tears of grown men behind
And built an island for a better tomorrow
Oh she was strong, but never unbending
She was beautiful but never desctructive
She cared, but she hid the price with a smile
She protected the ones who forgot her
She was in love every day in every way
With him, with us and with love itself
