Elaine 02:22
Elaine Elaine, Elaine, my life is not the same You're still the Angel in my life though God took you away I might sail many oceans, but ya never far away Guide me from above, Elaine Guide me with your love, Elaine For anything good about me was born in a place called you You helped me from life's ruin, you kept me straight and true When the Lord takes back a soul like you it hurts in many ways As if someone stole the mountains, or sunlight from the day Elaine, Elaine, my life is not the same You're still the Angel in my life though God took you away I might sail many oceans, but ya never far away Guide me from above, Elaine Guide me with your love, Elaine It's years now since your passing and our daughter she has grown To a beauty like her Mother, with a lover of her own And though I keep a brave face on, till at night when I'm alone That's when I cry and whisper your name, Elaine Elaine, Elaine, my life is not the same You're still the Angel in my life though God took you away I might sail many oceans, but ya never far away Guide me from above, Elaine Guide me with your love, Elaine

She Rides Horses Riding horses through sea of daisy To truth above the clutch corn fear Blue sky of intuition Guiding beyond a prison’s Fearful jealous men She will never hurt again, she rides When riding horses she receives all faculty Guided by the deep celestial son Already gentle men Parental guardian Nursed these boys alone For Angels stay at home, she rides When riding horses she’ll reach cornucopia In silver hue such eminent delight Blue sky of intuition Guiding her beyond a prison’s Fearful jealous men She will never hurt again, she rides
