Does Anybody Hear Her?

http://www.godtube.com/view_video.php?viewkey=5a2e075a1a4a6e1b9770

She is running
A hundred miles an hour in the wrong direction
She is trying
But the canyon’s ever widening
In the depths of her cold heart
So she sets out on another misadventure just to find
She’s another two years older
And she’s three more steps behind

Does anybody hear her? Can anybody see?
Or does anybody even know she’s going down today
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that’s tucked away in you and me
Does anybody hear her? Can anybody see?

She is yearning
For shelter and affection
That she never found at home
She is searching
For a hero to ride in
To ride in and save the day
And in walks her prince charming
And he knows just what to say
Momentary lapse of reason
And she gives herself away

Does anybody hear her? Can anybody see?
Or does anybody even know she’s going down today
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that’s tucked away in you and me
Does anybody hear her? Can anybody see?

If judgment looms under every steeple
If lofty glances from lofty people
Can’t see past her scarlet letter
And we’ve never even met her

If judgment looms under every steeple
If lofty glances from lofty people
Can’t see past her scarlet letter
And we’ve never even met her

Never even met her

Does anybody hear her? Does anybody see?
Or does anybody even know she’s going down today
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that’s tucked away in you and me

Does anybody hear her? Does anybody see?
Does anybody even know she’s going down today?
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that’s tucked away in you and me
Does anybody hear her? Does anybody see?

He is running a hundred miles an hour in the wrong direction

  1. That was painful. Reminded me of how I felt when I was twenty-seven and single.

  2. Lyrics from “Enter the Haggis” Song:
    ____

    Like ships in a squall we rise and we fall
    We’re plotting our course through waves
    Some masts are tall with sails so strong
    Others are tossed in the gale

    We try to stay dry with salt in our eyes
    No moment to rest or complain
    The moon isn’t far or clear sky and stars
    Red sky at morn on your tail

    REF: I’m not going to stand on the end of the pier
    I’m not going to let you go down with the ship
    Raise up your anchor it’s time to set sail
    And I’m not going to let you go down

    Like ships we were made to dance o’er our graves
    One false move and we could be thrown
    Buried alive before our due time
    To rest at sixty below

    So jibe while you can if there’s danger ahead
    Stay on your course if you will
    I’ll throw you a line as waves start to rise
    Bail as your ship starts to fill.
