Someone Died

This song is by Emitt Rhodes and appears on the album The American Dream (1970).

Rhodes

Someone in my family has died
My mother she cries as my father he comes to tell me
'Someone in our family has died'
He says to me in a voice soft and shaking like a baby.

Just yesterday she was here, now she's gone
It does not seem like it's real, something's wrong
She's gone, she's gone.

I can still see her face as I left
When I saw her this morning things were bright and fresh, it was a new day
I can still hear the last thing that she said
Now everyone's mourning her death now that she's passed away.

Just yesterday she was here, now she's gone
It does not seem like it's real, something's wrong
She's gone, she's gone.

I can still hear the last thing that she said
'A bird with a broken wing never soars so high again'.
