Lyrics

She's independent, she's a little bit irreverent
And she ain't got time, to play your games today
She's her mother's daughter, a child of the wind and water
And there ain't a man alive tonite, with a heart that she can't sway

Well she's a blessing, but she always keeps me guessing
Tossing and a turning and a talking in my sleep
And she's beautiful, like a sunset to a sailor
But she's just as hard to keep

Be it May or late September, ain't a one she don't remember
All the fragile hearted souls, who came to call
She's an un-repentant loner, and not one of them could own her
It ain't that they're not trying, lord, it's just that she won't fall

But her heart's not dormant, she's loves own paid informant
She feels it deep, and wears it on her sleeve
And she's beautiful, like a sunset to a sailor
But she's just as hard to keep

In my mind I'll hold her gently, and thank god for all she's lent me
And that she'll be mine, for just a little while
I'll pretend it does not grieve me, comes time for her to leave me
'Cause I'd hate to think a tear of mine, could scratch that angel's smile

'Cause she's a blessing, though she always keeps me guessing
Tossing and a turning and a talking in my sleep
And she's beautiful, like a sunset to a sailor
But she's just as hard to keep
Yeah she's beautiful, like a sunset to a sailor
But she's just as hard to keep
