It started out as many lives do, light in all the corners

warmth in every rainfall, enchantment in the snow
It held so many promises, she couldn't count her blessings
far too many signs of magic everywhere she'd go
and lost among the evergreens she wandered on entranced
life was the stage where she learned to dance

The kids at school were maybe first to question her illusions
but every day held it's escapes and every night it's dreams
If someone couldn't see her world, she'd wrap them up in laughter
a stranger would become a friend, apostle to her schemes
and day by day the cynics fell, enraptured by the child
Many a heart softened when she smiled and told us

Life, can be a pretty place, if it hurts just look around
summer rain can make your garden grow,
winter winds won't cut you down

It started out as many days do, one more new adventure
challenging those distant clouds, she dared them spoil her view
Her father's eyes were misty now, they couldn't give direction
hugs and tears without a sound and suddenly she knew
and out among the evergreens, how quickly autumn came
tasting the wind as it called her name, she told him

Life can be a pretty place, so here's a place for someone new
here's a dream to carry through the years, can I leave my love with you ?
