Someone For A Day

This song is by John Wesley and appears on the album The Emperor Falls (1998).

Why do you cry for her
She's not gone to heaven
She's just around the corner
With some man

You grieve as if she's died
And been taken
She's just slipped from you
Like water through your hands

She said, I know a little
About losing people
I watched 'em come and go
Like moving pictures of a life

You give what you can
But they slip right through ya
Like they were never here
They fade into the night

She looked at me and said,
"I gave my all, to get nothing"
The value of our lives won't fill a grave
I'd trade my soul to be part of something
I'd trade my life to be someone for a day
Someone for a day
