Painting Shari

she's got a butterfly view fromt he 20th floor

she's so many things I never thought I would adore

an honest smile but her eyes they will reveal

her mysteries when the canvas starts to peel

with beautiful lines she starts her best work yet

she's got the wind in her face and every color in her head

the city sleeps as her stars begin to shine

I wonder if she knows she's painting herself this time

you don't need anything but an open heart and honesty

I can't take what you can't give you have the heart you're born with baby let it live

sing your songs paint your dreams I will play along and be there if it's meant to be

kiss your soul let it breath I will be the one only if it was meant to be

the darkness fades into an amber rise

the wind never slept it stayed right by her side

her masterpiece is just moments away

I wonder if she knows she's painting a brand new day

the silhouette of grace slips back to her skin

how very precious these moments of zen

to understand her is to open the sky

such beautiful things were alwasy meant to fly
