You
You
Came into my life
It was sunshine everywhere
You were outta sight
Just standing, shining there
Shining there
Shining there
All my days were bright
You took me to the sky
You showed me the light
You taught me how to fly to the clouds
Straight up to heaven
Was it just a dream
I couldn't tell if you were really real
Was it just a dream
A dream that I could see and touch and feel
All through the night
I held you close to me and loved you so
But with the light
You turned to me and said you had to go
Please don't go
Please don't go
Across the country side
I chased an angel fleeting
Until it dropped and sighed
Its angel wings still beating
It was you
It was you
Oh I stood there and cried
And watched love fade away
I saw an angel die
My heart died too that day
