Audrey


Audrey was a girl that sat in my classroom
she never said a word she just sat there so furtively
I never noticed her until I heard the radio
telling about the way she took her life
today it's all upon the covers of the papers
about her folks at home I guess her daddy is a drinker
her mummy left her when she was just a tiny child
tell me Audrey was that the first time you felt abandonment

Hold on baby don't be sorry
cause every day has it's up's and downs
Hold on baby they'll be sunshine
every life has it's stormy nights

Come to think about it there are some things
I can recall about her arms they had blue spots on them
I remember then thinking these thoughts to myself
Is it wrong to wonder about somebody else's problems
I'm not burdened with at all

Hold on baby don't be sorry
cause every day has it's up's and downs
Hold on baby they'll be sunshine
every life has it's stormy nights

Oh there there she lays down in the button of the river
tell me what crime did it take that tore this girls only willingness
but I will pray that someday she'll rise again

Well if you're there I hope you can see my sorrow and the pain of guilt
I never asked you how you were
But one thing I can assure you after wittnessing
what has been done I will open my heart to the new girl that sits next door

Hold on baby don't be sorry
cause every day has it's up's and downs
Hold on baby they'll be sunshine
every life has it's stormy nights

Hold on baby don't be sorry
cause every day has it's up's and downs
Hold on baby they'll be sunshine in your life
