LUCINDA WILLIAMS
"Sharp Cutting Wings (Song To A Poet)"

You're the one, you're my shinin' star
You're the one I've been waitin' for
Let's fly away
To some foreign country
Where nobody knows who we are

I wish I had a ship to sail the waters
I wish I had about a hundred dollars
But I just stand
With this glass in my hand
Feelin' like nothin' even matters

Your words run through me like the blood in my veins
I could swear I knew your love
Before I knew your name...

Everyday I miss your smilin' face
No one here can ever take your place
The sun can shine down
Over my town
But it never shines in my days

I told all the stars above
I'm gonna shower you with my love
I won't demand you
I'll try to understand you
My love is as free as a dove

Your words run thru me like the blood in my veins
I could swear I knew your
Before I knew your name...

You're the one, you're my shinin' star
You're the one I've been waitin' for
Let's fly away
To some foreign country
Where nobody knows who we are
