Crying years, healing tears
I've met with you today
light the way, no more to say
you've drawn me near, I've given way

Love didn't judge, didn't put a price on my head
you didn't hold your grudges
you helped me down from all I did and said
you gave me hands to heal my aching head

O, I never heard you come
O, and now the love is done
and I feel beautiful

Fearful eyes, defensive lies
put me down in silence
but you didn't mind, you were only ever kind
you're my strong alliance

And today I can look them in the eye
this way my heart doesn't have to die
you make me feel like a queen
it's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen

Starved and low, a hungry soul
you gave me love when there was none
left out in the cold, a hundred years old
a new face for the old one
And I feel beautiful, so beautiful
so beautiful, now the love is done
