Wildflower Lyrics

She's faced the hardest times you could imagine
And many times her eyes fought back the tears
And when her youthful world was about to fall in
Each time her slender shoulders bore the weight of all her fears
And a sorrow no one hears
Still rings in midnight silence in her ears

Let her cry, for she's a lady (She's a lady)
Let her dream, for she's a child (Child)
Let the rain fall down upon her
She's a free and gentle flower growing wild

And if by chance I should hold her (If by chance that I should hold her)
Let me hold her for a time (Let me hold her for a time)
But if allowed just one possession
I would pick her from the garden to be mine (I would pick her from the garden to be mine)

Mm-mm-mm, mm-mm
Be careful how you touch her, for she'll awaken
And sleep's the only freedom that she knows
And when you walk into her eyes, you won't believe
The way she's always payin' for a debt she never owes
And a silent wind still blows
That only she can hear, and so she goes

Let her cry, for she's a lady
Let her dream, for she's a child
Let the rain fall down upon her
She's a free and gentle flower growing wild

Let her cry, for she's a lady (She's a lady)
Let her dream, for she's a child
Let the rain fall down upon her
She's a free and gentle flower growing wild
She's a flower growing wild
She's free

This reminds me of a bad time in my childhood, which like it says, paying for a debt I never owed...a sin which was never mine to begin with as a child....Lord have Mercy on that soul..

Took forever to find it. I love this song!! It's me. It's every woman. If we could only find a man to feel this way about us.

My Mother committed suicide at the age of 60. This song describes her. I wish I had understood before it was too late.

Nice one. It made me my generation. This is not David Richardson's lyrics remarkably. This is a poem dedicated to a dying child if read between the lines.

Absolutely one of the most beautiful songs of the 70's. I just can't help but smiling and swaying to the music everytime I hear it.

The sadness I always saw in the eyes of my late sister-in-law Marlene. She was so beautiful inside and out; yet she was so sad. I really miss her!!!!!

I think every woman sees at least a part of, if not all of herself in these words. I just think about the one who put pen to paper and wrote them. How much he must have loved a woman.

This song described my mom and her life perfectly. She loved the song. My sister and I played it for her as she lay in a coma and took her last breath from leukemia. I miss her so much.
