spring never came for me today
what can wash this pain away
i wish you hadn't died
oh died by suicide
spring never came for me today
somebody show me the way
could i have saved this girl
with just a simple pray
spring never came for me today

i don't understand everything
that he does
but i wish he had told me
who she was
spring never came for me today
the flowers could not grow
what faces could they show
spring never came for me today


im sure she felt so alone
her pain was left unknown
to those who did not wish
to have the eyes to see
im sure she felt so hurt inside
she felt the only way was suicide
i wish i could have been there
when she cried
when she cried

spring never came for me today
what can wash this pain away
i wish you hadn't died
oh died by suicide
spring never came for me today
somebody show me the way
could i have saved this girl
with just a simple pray
spring never came for me today

wherever she is
i hope the flowers grow
i hope their faces show
i hope spring is everyday
a girl of just fifteen
oh her peers were so mean
a world within her
nobody have ever seen

some things I will never understand
sometimes i wonder if this is still God's land
were those people made from his hands
were they made from his hands

wherever she is
i hope the flowers grow
i hope their faces show
if you can hear me phoebe
i just want you to know
i love you
i wish you hadn't had to go
spring never came
spring never came
spring never came
for me today


The author's comments:
Inspired by a fifteen year old girl named Pheobe P. She was tormented by bullies and would later take her own life in her home. My heart goes out to the parents, to her closest friends, to her family, to everyone who has been moved by this story as have I, I pray for you. This song just expresses the deep feeling of sadness that I feel within my heart for her. I almost cried when I heard about it. I have been teased and taunted in school and driven to the edge of the cliff, but I decided not to jump, there is still hope I knew, if only she had too. Bless you pheobe. Soar with your angel wings. Forever yours, denmark.
