Girl with a Book

about

A few friends around me lately have had their mother die. This is a song that came from their stories and struggle to come to terms with the loss.

lyrics

Every time I let you down
You were there to turn me 'round
When father packed away your clothes
I begged with him to keep them close

Found your photo in the earth
Of a day long before my birth
And your face so full of dreams
A girl with a book

I'm breathing out I'm breathing in
You're only for a time hidden
My hands were warm while yours grew cold
Hands that made the dress I'd hold

Found your photo in the earth
Of a day long before my birth
And your face so full of dreams
A girl with a book
