Sally, what can I say about you?
That would be true without you
With your ribbons hanging rainbows in your hand?
You know, he's young and still unproven
And to himself unspoken
And though his roads like thieves appear
Lead him to think he's left what's near
He's gonna look for you to be who you are

Your friends are telling you to leave him
As though they really knew him
While they rob you with their honor and your name
You won't give up now with all your pure love
Give up with all your strong love
He's gonna know when he's just as far as any body knows
And he'll look for you to be who you are

Sometimes my thinking gets so heavy
I feel, I stand too closely
And it's so useless, somehow, I should run away
But that's not the truth no matter what is
No matter who they say is
It's you and you alone can be sure that you're not wrong
You've got all you need to be who you are

Sally, What can I say about you?
That would be true without you
With your ribbons hanging rainbows in your hand
You know, he's young and still unproven
And to himself unspoken
And though his roads like thieves appear
Lead him to think he's left what's near
He's gonna look for you to be who you are

The caretaker's daughter , she lives in the garden of Eden
She knows the name of each flower, she remembers which let you in
She spills the sky when she looks in your eye and her jasmine
A symphony heard from a mansion when the wind sweeps in between
