They would have said she had eyes like her mother’s
Lucid blue, two waves stood against the light
They would have said she could sing just like no another
Like a bird, she would be living here tonight
A name written in the sand
unplanned

Rebecca, where is she now?
Rebecca, I’ll tell you how
If you met her then you’d know her by her smile
Rebecca, what’s in a name?
Rebecca, they say it’s such a shame
But they forget her all the same

All these words but not a single way
To bring her back, to touch her
All these years and not a single day
Spent with her, as time washes away
A name written in the sand
unplanned

Rebecca, where is she now?
Rebecca, I’ll tell you how
If you met her then you’d know her by her smile
Rebecca, what’s in a name?
Rebecca, they say it’s such a shame
But they let them all the same

It took some clever men some time to find some reasons why
Why she had to die, she didn’t have to die
She doesn’t have to die

Rebecca, where is she now?
Rebecca, we never let her smile
I never met her, but I let them raise the knife, right in front of my eyes
Rebecca, I let you down
I let you down and so we drown
In 200 000 little drops of light
Rebecca
