Never much of a hopeful man
Nothing good to say
But i couldn't help it
When i saw her
I had to know her

She don't know where to go
She don't know how to stay
And she don't know how good i can be
Or how much i can pray

And soon i know her a little more
She's everything i dreamed
But still i wonder
What it would be like
If she let me

She don't know where to go
She don't know how to stay
And she don't know how good i can be
Or how much i can pray

There must be something
That's following her
That keeps her from the stay
There must be something
That makes me want to pray

She says she's alright
But she's not sure
And i'm not sure what that means
She says she's alright
But she needs some help
I don't know how

    General CommentI think this is my favorite of E's solo efforts.

    My thought is that in a rather rocky doubtbul relationship with God, the narrator of the song is nonetheless drawn back to Him through his feelings for this troubled girl.

    He wants her, yes, but he also wants to help her. And he senses that he can't do that alone.

    I love the chanting and the bell wound into the song at the end. Beautiful.
