Lyrics

Lemonade Queen
Words & Music - Becky Shaw

Don’t ask me how I saw her
A waking dream – a trick of light
Came to my window from the city sky
Over the freeway last night

In one hand she held up a picture
In the other, an empty cup
I said, I see by your outfit you’re an angel
And I hope you haven’t come to pick me up!
But she just cried out –

Rayna! Rayna!
Oooh – tell me, have you seen her
Oooh – golden hair and eyes so brown
Every evening she comes down
Angel to the angels, Lemonade Queen

To my surprise, I knew her
The one we lost so young, so long ago
And the tokens of all our wishes for her brightest future we laid down
In the place where we watched her go

So I said, What do you mean, coming here?
Haven’t we cried enough?
Are you the one who let her slip away?

I waited for an answer –
she looked through me, and looked away
Nervously scanning the street light sky,
As if she’d never heard, she gave no reply

I was waiting for some explanation,
when suddenly the angel rushed away
And I watched her following a crowd of angels
gathering in the distant sky, and – oh …

Rayna! Rayna!
Oooh – now I really see her
Oooh – tell me have you seen her?
Oooh – golden hair and eyes so brown
Every evening she comes down
Angel to the angels – Lemonade Queen
