Sadly, Softly Beautiful
©2003. Erica Molz

She hides behind the shadows of her sadness
Afraid to feel the sun upon her face
One time she let the heat of love consume her
He left her heart in ashes, and stole her trust in love away

(Climb)

But there's something in her eyes
Lord, I have to try
To lead that woman back to love again

(Chorus)
She's sadly, softly beautiful
With wonders hidden deep
I know her heart holds secrets
She's aching not to keep
Sadly, softly beautiful
Please tell them all to me

I watch her standing quiet in the moonlight
Fragile eyes reveal the way she feels for me
A smile plays across her lips, then fades
A moment of faith, but she's not ready to believe

(Climb)

But there's something in her eyes
Lord, I have to try
To lead that woman back to love again

(Repeat Chorus)

(Chorus - changed)

Sadly, softly beautiful
With wonders hidden deep
I know your heart holds secrets
You're aching not to keep
Sadly, softly beautiful
Sadly, softly wonderful
Please tell them all to me
