Though you rest alone in silence
We know you'll rise again
Lifted by the ones you touch who remain
Though we paint a painful picture
I see the other side
Because of you the coldness in us has died

Healing waters
Healing waters
Now the Queen of Hearts forever
Takes her place in history
Healing waters
Healing waters
From the corners of these sad eyes
Into gutters
Into rivers
Into seas

Suddenly the years of anger had fallen from your face
As you finally shook their icy embrace
You suffered through the wounds they'd given
And cured them from within
And you had survived that world you were in

Healing waters
Healing waters
Even hardened hearts surrender to your well of mysteries
Healing waters
Healing waters
From the corners of your sad eyes
Into gutters
Into rivers
Into seas

Oh the ride was rough
And you'd nearly given up
And you swore they'd never break you down again
You reclaimed your soul
From those eyes so steely cold
Release the pain

Now the Queen of Hearts forever
Takes her place in history
Healing waters
Healing waters
Oh Diana
Love forever
From your people
From the rivers
From the seas

    General CommentThis song was written very shortly after Princess Diana died. I think it was a lot better than Elton John's tribute to her.

    General CommentAn amazing song. However, contrary to popular belief, this song was not written after Diana's death. It was RE-written after her death, but was originally used in the movie "When The Bullet Hits The Bone" which was released 2 years prior. That version, as far as I know, is only in the movie, but is not even listed in the credits.
