ladies of song

lady rose how deep you go
looking at us from above
i feel your love lady rose

lady day i heard you cry
and when we needed more
you gave us your gentle soul lady

oh you tried and you tried
and you cried aloud
but the music got louder
you were lost in the crowd

ladies of song
what is right what is wrong?
we are our immortality
and the songs they set us free lady

oh you tried and you tried
and you cried aloud
but the music got louder
you were lost in the crowd
but you try and you try
and you sing aloud
and the music comes clearer
in the heart of the Tao
