"There She Goes" as written by Abner Silver and Benny Davis....
Just one question in my mind
still lingers on through time.
"Oh my dear God, why'd you let happen what happened that night?"
Oh my dear God

there she goes
there she goes
there she goes

Take the long way back to your house
on country roads where we found out
an amazing such amazing grace
and a sweet sound

there she goes
there she goes
there she goes
there she goes
there she goes
there she goes..

and she said that she wanted to stay
but she cannot it's time to leave
and she said that she wanted to wait
in heaven, where she will be happy.

"My dear God why have you forsaken me?"
Cause I've cried out to you so loud and i have been praying...
nd where is that unfaling; amazing grace to see
and where is that sweet sound you took from me?"

there she goes
there she goes
there she goes
there she goes
there she goes
there she goes..

and she said that she wanted to stay
but she cannot it's time to leave
and she said that she wanted to wait
in heaven, where she will be happy.

    General CommentOnce again I think this song is about the same girl that he sang about in "Don't Go". He can't follow her fore some reason but just can't let go and doesn't want to miss her and remember her, he wants to be with her. Must have been someone special!

    General Commentno, it's about a close friend of theirs that passed away. they had several different songs about it, but the others were too personal for most people to hear comfortably.

    General CommentThe violin solo at the end was unexpected, and I dig it.

    General CommentTo elaborate a bit,

    "and she said that she wanted to stay
    but she cannot it's time to leave
    and she said that she wanted to wait
    in heaven, where she will be happy.

    "My dear God why have you forsaken me?"
    Cause I've cried out to you so loud and i have been praying...
    nd where is that unfaling; amazing grace to see
    and where is that sweet sound you took from me?""

    I think that's saying that she didn't want to die, but she couldn't help it, and Nathaniel is asking somebody (God?) why his prayers weren't answered. He believed in him, and he failed him?

    And I'm guessing the sweet sound is her voice.
