White Sparrow

Today I walked down our old street

Past the diner where we'd meet

Now I dine alone in our old seats

The cold wind blows right through my bones

And I feel like I'm getting old

But I wish I was getting old with you

I held your hand when we took shelter from the rain

She laughed as we picked out our children's names


White sparrows fell from heaven

and carried her away

Black arrows cut the strings of my heart,

I kneel and pray


Her clothes hang in the closet still

The phone sits on the windowsill

And every time it rings it gives me chills

My heart just stopped when I was told

Doctor, doctor, on the phone

Said my love was never coming home

I hold your casket gently walking to the grave

Dark clouds eclipse the sun won't shine again


White sparrows fell from heaven

and carried her away

Black arrows cut the strings of my heart,

I kneel and pray


They gave her one more day

To say the words I couldn't say

I'm crying in pain, crying in pain


And I'm not looking for answers

No, I'm not looking for answers

But dear God, why did you choose her?
