Who will stand alone?

She carried ribbons she wore them out
Courage built a bridge jealous tore it down
At least it's something you've left behind
Like Kohoutek you were gone

We sat in the garden we stood on the porch
I won't deny myself we never talked

She wore bangles she wore bells
On her toes and she jumped like a fish
Like a flyin' fish you were gone
Like Kohoutek can't forget that

Fever built a bridge, reason tore it down
If I am one to follow, who will stand alone?

Maybe you're not the problem
Scissors, paper, stone
If you stand and holler, these prayers will talk

She carried ribbons, she wore them out
Michael built a bridge, Michael tore it down
At least it's something you've left behind
Like Kohoutek, you were gone

Michael built a bridge, Michael tore it down
If I stand and holler, will I stand alone?
