My friend Marge gave me one green velvet shoe; she kept the other.


Green Shoes

Green velvet shoes
One for me and one for you
And when the angels call you home
My green shoes will walk alone

As green as forests where we ran
We dreamt of queens in foreign lands
But you’ve been called where I cannot go
And my green shoes will walk alone

Into the wild you’ll wander far
A firefly sprung from a jar
Though I’ll miss you dear
Take my leave of you here
I’ll wait for you
In these green shoes

Straight as the arrow flies
Heart as pure as clear blue skies
The truth is yours and all you really own
And your green shoes must walk alone



from Goodbye Raven, released September 7, 2012
