Wildflower - The Skylark/Hank Crawford/The New Birth/Johnny Mathis/Stephen Teller

She's faced the hardest times you can 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 the song that 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 that I should hold her
Let me hold her for a time
And if allowed but one possession
I will pick her from the garden to be mine
Be careful how you touch her For she'll awaken
For sleep's the only freedom that she knows
And when you look into her eyes, you won't believe
The way she's always payin' for a debt she never owes
And the silent wind still blows that only she can hear
And so she goes
