Holly’s Song

Holly…I came to tell you it got dark today
We made our way across a cruel cruel place
Cut my arms again on the way
Saved no pride, got away, but not away…

He sang: “Hey babe…hey babe…”

Candy…so we never made it to Ireland
In a time back I thought I was his dear darlin’
But what was, was just in my head?
Even when I was too upset to sing:

“Hey babe…hey babe…”

And the smarter girls go…
The smarter girls go:
