lyrics

I knew a woman lovely in her bones.
She bent with the kindness she offered, like a bow.
I will remember her kindness.
I will remember her kindness, heaven knows.

She cut up the apples she gave us in pieces to share.
No makeup, no frills, and no fashion, just pins in her hair.
I will remember her kindness.
I will remember her kindness, heaven knows.

The bird flies out.
The bird flies back.
The bird flies out, heaven knows.

Sometimes on a breeze I can hear her sing for the wind.
And in my own face I can see her, see her skin.
I will remember her kindness.
I will remember her kindness, heaven knows.

I knew a woman lovely in her bones.
