She is afraid to shine for the sake of being humble...

Yet, somehow, she builds a castle in the sky,

To uplift the wanderers,

Who come in and out of her life.

 

Her head never leaves those clouds,

Her only place of comfort.

Her dreams just out of reach,

She is no stranger to sacrifice.

But oh she loves.

Oh she loves more than she has ever known.

 

If you need her - If you miss her,

Distance may make your heart grow fonder,

But in time,

You will lose her to another man's eyes.

For you have seen her light,

Putting shame to a firefly.

 

Rearrange those mountains across that horizon,

And you will reset old boundaries.

Show her she is worth all the love she has set aside.

The kind of love she gives, and gives, and gives,

Without asking, in return.

 

- Or become another wanderer,

Coming in and out of her life.

But oh she loves.

Oh she will still love more than she's ever known.
