Lyrics

Saint Charles

She left at eighteen thinking she’d never look back
Walking in the shadows her old ghosts cast
Headed for the northwest with a suitcase and a backpack
She put as many miles as she could between herself and the past

Crossing the bridges burned
Trying to heal the hurt

So far away so long ago
Every step taken on life’s long road
Her heart just wouldn’t let go
Saint Charles calling her home

Twenty years longing twenty years never found
In a the days of emptiness she nearly drowned
But somewhere deep inside her soul where silence is so loud
A ray of hope was always shining through the darkest clouds

Remembering her fathers words
In every lesson she learned

So far away so long ago
Every step taken on life’s long road
Her heart just wouldn’t let go
Saint Charles calling her home
