Virginia Bluebell

Album: Revolution (2009)
  • Carrying the weight on the end of a limb
    Your just waitin' for somebody
    To pick you up again
    Shaded by a tree, can't live up to a rose
    All you ever wanted
    Was a sunny place to grow

    Pretty little thing
    Sometimes you gotta look good
    And let the world see
    All the beauty that you're made of
    'Cause the way you hang your head
    Nobody can tell
    Your my Virginia bluebell
    My Virginia bluebell

    Even through a storm
    A flower can bloom
    You just need a little push
    Spring is coming soon
    Umbrella in the rain
    They'll roll off your back
    Better whatcha can realize what you have

    Pretty little thing
    Sometimes you gotta look good
    And let the world see
    All the beauty that you're made of
    'Cause the way you hang you head
    Nobody can tell
    Your my Virginia bluebell

    Put a little light in the darkest places
    Put a little smile on the saddest faces

    Pretty little thing
    Sometimes you gotta look good
    And let the world see
    All the beauty that you're made of
    'Cause the way you hang you head
    Nobody can tell
    Your my Virginia bluebell

  • Roger from Philadelphia, PaI am a pastor and I see the song on several levels: the singer's love for a pretty flower; a lover comparing his beloved to a flower, as the writer of "Song of Songs" in the Old Testament compared his beloved to the rose of Sharon; and a symbol of the Kingdom of God and God's love for his people, which the Jews did with the "Song of Songs." That's why the "Song of Songs" got into the Bible. Jesus did this when he compared the Kingdom to a tiny mustard seed which grew into a plant big enough for the birds to make a home in it. The bluebell shines light into dark places and brings joy to the saddest faces.
