wild flower...........

i was a kid when "wildflower" by skylark was a hit, and not only did i love it because it was a beautiful song, but i always related to it on some level.....almost felt like it was written FOR me. that would have been odd at the time, because, as i said, i was just a young girl. recently....our local oldies station has started putting the song in their rotation, and every time i hear touches something in my soul because i relate to it so deeply. it's a heartbreaking song, but as my heart breaks often, i can still be thankful for such a release! thank you writers and skylark!

She's faced the hardest times,

You could imagine

And many times,

Her eyes fought back the tears

And when her youthful world,

Was about to fall in

Each time her slender shoulders,

Bore the weight of all her fears

And a sorrow no one hears

Still rings in midnight silence

In her ears

Let her cry,

For she's a lady

Let her dream

For she's a child

Let the rain,

Fall down upon her

She's a free and gentle flower

Growing wild

And if by chance,I should hold her

Let me hold her for a time

But if allowed just one possession

I would pick her from the garden,To be mine


Be careful how you touch her,

For she'll awaken

And sleep's the only freedom,

That she knows

And when you walk into her eyes,

You won't believe

The way she's always payin'

For a debt she never owes

And a silent wind still blows

That only she can hear

And so, she goes
