She may be the face I can't forget
A trace of pleasure or regret
Maybe my treasure or the price I have to pay
She may be the song the summer sings
Maybe the chill that autumn brings
Maybe a hundred different things
Within the measure of a day

She may be the beauty or the beast
Maybe the famine or the feast
May turn each day into a heaven or a hell
She may be the mirror of my dreams
A smile reflected in a stream
She may not be what she may seem
Inside her shell

*** String ensemble instrumental break ***

She who always seems so happy in a crowd
Whose eyes can be so private and so proud
No ones allowed to see them when they cry
She may be the hope that cannot hope to last
May come to me from shadows in the past
That I remember till the day I die

She may be the reason I survive
The why and wherefore I'm alive
The one I cared for through the rough in many years
Me, I take the laughter in her tears
And make them all my souvenirs
For where she goes I've got to be
The meaning of my life is she
Oh she
