YOU HAVE BEEN LOVED
She takes the back road and the lane
Past the school that has not changed
In all this time
She thinks of when the boy was young
All the battles she had won
Just to give him life


That man
She loved that man
For all his life
But now we meet to take him flowers
And only god knows why


For what's the use in pressing palms
When children fade in mother's arms
It's a cruel world
We've so much to lose
And what we have to learn, we rarely choose


So if it's god who took her son
He cannot be the one living in her mind


Take care my love, she said
Don't think that god is dead
Take care my love, she said


You have been loved


If i was weak, forgive me
But i was terrified
You brushed my eyes with angels wings, full of love
The kind that makes devils cry


So these days
My life has changed
And i'll be fine
But she just sits and counts the hours
Searching for her crime


So what's the use of pressing palms
If you won't keep such love from harm
It's a cruel world
You've so much to prove


And heaven help the ones who wait for you


Well i've no daughters, i've no sons
Guess i'm the only one
Living in my life


Take care my love, he said
Don't think that god is dead
Take care my love, he said


You have been loved
