[Verse 1]
She’s faced the hardest times you could imagine
And many times her eyes fought back the tears
And when her youthful world
Was about to fall in

[Pre-Chorus]
Each time her slender shoulders
Bore the weight of all her fears
And a sorrow no one hears
Still rings in midnight silence in her ears

[Chorus]
Let her cry for she’s a lady
Let her dream
For she’s a child
Let the rain fall down upon her
She’s a free and gentle flower
Growing wild

[Bridge]
And if by chance I should hold her
If by chance I should hold her
Let me hold her for a time!
Let me hold her for a time!
But, if allowed just one possession
I would pick her from the garden
I would pick her from the garden
To be mine
To be mine

[Verse 2]
Be careful how you touch her
For she’ll awaken
And sleep’s the only freedom
That she knows
And when you walk into her eyes
You won’t believe

[Pre-Chorus]
The way she’s always paying
For a debt she never owes
And a silent wind still blows
That only she can hear and so she goes

[Chorus]
Let her cry for she’s a lady
Let her dream
For she’s a child
Let the rain fall down upon her
She’s a free and gentle flower
Growing wild
Let her cry for she’s lady
Let her dream
For she’s a child
Let the rain fall down upon her
She’s a free and gentle flower
Growing wild

[Outro]
She’s a flower
Growing wild
She’s free
Growing wild
