Light Princess

from the album "Knowledge and Innocence"

Words and Music by Terry Taylor
1986 SnellSongs (ASCAP)
Hand to teary eyes
Brush shadows (I see it now)
Much to my surprise
A light grows (I see it now)

No, I could not hold
This child in my arms
So I let her go and she

Floated to Heaven
She's up in Heaven
A loss, a gain
God knows her name
'Cos she's up in Heaven

A gift taken away
From my world (I see it now)
No, she could not stay
In this world (I see it now)

I have few answers
I quit asking "Why"
Since she's lighter than air and she's

Floating to Heaven
She's up in Heaven
So near, so far
Another star
That shines up in Heaven

Mmmmmmmm........
I see it now, I see it now

No, I could not hold
This child in my arms
So I let her go and she

Floated to Heaven
She's up in Heaven
A father gives
The Father takes
A father gives
The Father takes
Her on up to heaven

Mmmmmmmm........
