Philomena

lyrics

No birds were singing, no flowers in bloom,
that winter day you left your mother’s womb.
And New year’s fireworks exploded overhead,
as you were cradled on the bed.

You stole my heart when I held your hand.
I’m helpless now, under your command.
How could a little girl, so silent and so still,
leave such an empty space to fill?

You’re my perfect, sweetest dreamer.
Love you always, Philomena.

A tale of promise, three seasons long.
You are my story, you are my song.
When I think that you have given me all the words,
there’ll always be another verse.

You’re my perfect, sweetest dreamer.
Love you always, Philomena.

I carved your name on a walnut tree,
I’ll watch it grow up for the world to see.
And I will gaze upon your picture, now and then,
‘Til I can hold you again.

But, oh, from your hiding place
you see the world as it should be:
There’s only our embrace,
and nothing but harmony.

You’re my perfect, sweetest dreamer.
Love you always, Philomena.
You’re my perfect, sweetest dreamer.
Love you always, Philomena.
