Phobe

words Dave Pearce, music Keith Mouland.

In my mind I hold a memory of a girl that I once saw
Every day for fifty years or more
They all called her Heather, she was Phoebe to me
Phoebe was my girl, my love you see
It was a day in September, my girl went away
The angels took her to a better place to stay
Oh can you see me Phoebe, shining down on me
It’s your love and beauty, that’s all I ever see

Phoebe, Phoebe, my beautiful girl
Phoebe with those big brown eyes
Your pain travelled with you, as the years went by
They only saw your smiling face, never saw you cry

It was never self,you always gave, when you were the one in need
And you who sown the little ones their love care seeds
Your love rays shone on everyone, you showed how love should be
You’ll never dim or fade away, my love my constancy

Phoebe, Phoebe, my beautiful girl
Phoebe with those big brown eyes
Your pain travelled with you, as the years went by
They only saw your smiling face, never saw you cry
They only saw your smiling face, never saw you cry
