Ruby

Ruby, Ruby
oh what a beautiful light you left behind (x2)

I sing this song as a celebration
for the road that matters more than the destination
and the lessons that we learn from the light, from the light as it shines

Ruby, Ruby
oh what a beautiful light you left behind (x2)

I can see you taken pictures of the shadows in the trees
with your friends all around you making music melodies
living every second, every minute, every hour of time

Ruby, Ruby
oh what a beautiful light you left behind (x2)

Some people say that they want to live forever
but eternity is nothing but a temporary measure
it’s the sand through the hour glass that polishes the stones until they shine

Ruby, Ruby
oh what a beautiful light you left behind (x2)

I may cry a little every now and then
but what’s a few tears between friends

life is a verb and it just keeps goin’
no matter what the weather or which way the wind is blowin’
and just have to live it you do not have the option to decline

Ruby, Ruby
oh what a beautiful light you left behind (x2)
