Driver let me tell you a secret
A secret in the shape of a song
Heard something move in the dark outside
I lay awake hardly breathing, shaking all night long
It came out of the southern sky
And drove into our humble town
We lay our hands upon its side
My sister, she lay her body down

She was gone, gone, gone
She was gone, gone, gone

I was born twenty miles from here
I've never seen anything else
But that night I saw tall buildings made of glass
And a million other pictures of her holy face

And she was gone, gone, gone
She was gone, gone, gone
She was gone, gone, gone
The Suntrapper took her away.

A sparrow flew against a pane of glass
And people came running from all around
Wind blew all directions
Ground opened up and the trees came down
I pulled the car to the side of the road
Checked all directions on a tourist map
Overhead 747 jet engines
Tore the roof off my one-room weatherboard shack

She was gone, gone, gone
She was gone, gone, gone
She was gone, gone, gone
The Suntrapper took her away.
