Today I walked down our old street
Past the diner where we meet
Now I dine alone in our old seats
The cold wind blows right through my bones
And I feel like I'm getting old, but I wish I was getting old with you

I held you're hand when we took shelter from the rain
She laughed as we picked out our childrens names

White sparrows fell from heaven and carried her away
Black arrows cut the strings of my heart I kneeld and pray

Her clothes hang in the closet still
The phone sits on the windowsill
And every time it rings it give's me chills
My heart just stopped when I was told: doctor, doctor on the phone said my Love was never coming home

I hold you're casket gently walking to the grave
Dark clouds eclipse the sun won't shine again

White sparrows fell from heaven and carried her away
Black arrows cut the strings of my heart I kneeld and pray
They gave her one more day, to say the words I couldn't say
I'm crying in pain, crying in pain

And I'm not looking for answers, no I'm not looking for answers
But dear god why did you choose her?

White sparrows fell from heaven and carried her away
Black arrows cut the strings of my heart I kneeld and pray
They gave her one more day, to say the words I couldn't say
I'm crying in pain (crying in pain) crying in pain
Our love will remain, crying in pain

    Well I think this song is about a man who's love/wife died. He goes back to all the places they used to go and he is upset that god took her from him.
