She wears a smile to brighten the darkest sky
She stands beside me and I don't know why
I fall under her spell as she beckons me
And takes me to a place that I'd longed to see

I feel the tide of life lap at my feet
Washing away the lies, pain and deceit

And now I think I know
Why I was so alone
The day I came from the dirt
Up into the sky
And now I think I know
Why I was so alone
The day I found my hope
In those southern eyes

She would hold me close and tell me not to fear
Even when I felt the need to get out of here
There are still many times when I am feeling low
I start to slip and I start letting go

Then she takes me by the soul and sets me free
And guides my heart to where it warms to be

And now I think I know
Why I was so alone
The day I came from the dirt
Up into the sky
And now I think I know
Why I was so alone
The day I found my hope
In those southern eyes
