This song is about a very special women I met in a small city across the border. She can't walk nor can she play her self made cello anymore. Now she dances on her wheels and cheers up all the people around her. It's wonderful to play for her. Dispite her troubles she has got the energy of life in her bright eyes. I only gave a little and got back the world!
Once in a while I go and cross the border.
Put down my stuff to see if I can play for her.
It’s a small city people still have time.
For tears and a smile when someone sings his mind.
And everytime I go, It’s her I hope to see.
I never know If she will come back to me.
Or for how long she must endure this trainwreck of pain,
eeehh I hope to see her tears and smile back again.
Although she breathes in defeat.
And her sweet heart struggles for another beat
She flies so free
When I play for her, when I play for her
She flies so free. When I play for her
the brightness in her strong eyes light up the sky for me.
And everyday she steps away further,
of feeling free, as all her limbs slowly imprison her.
Now she can use her feet no longer,
Wheels and a chair is the next step for her.
Bridge + Chorus
Once again I’m over the border,
Put down my stuff to see but there’s no sign of her.
It’s a small city and people still have time to spent.
But no money can buy time back again.
No need to play for her no need to play for her.
The brightness in her blue eyes light up the sky for me.
For me For me For me Ohh Ohh Oh...
She flies so free.
No need to play for her. No need to play for her.
The brightness in her strong eyes lights up the sky for me.
