Amelia—A 75-year old mystery

Amelia Earhart was one of those rare, amazing adventurers, who I admire greatly. She disappeared 75 years ago today—last heard from on July 2, 1937. All that is know is that she disappeared somewhere over the Pacific. Please have a listen to this absolutely beautiful and haunting song dedicated to the amazing Amelia by the Story (with the lovely vocals of Jonatha Brook).

Amelia, it's May and blossoms 1957
Single but bold
I see you, belle of the ball and
Hometown sweetheart, gifted
I want to tell you seize this day, let someone else go tend tradition
Take what's yours
No one else can tell your fire, paint with your words, sing with your voice
Take what's yours
Amelia, I see you all in white
And lovely, blinded by loveAnd he too, is beautiful and young
And blind
I want to tell you he's the wrong man
You'll look back
You were told that this is what you want but it will hurt you
You can't live for someone else
But you live
For me For me
For me
He would do things to make your life easier
But never talk to you, know you at all
You were his showpiece charming as you entertained
All his fancies
I wish I could have seized that day and torn it from your history
Now it comes down to a life that might have soared
But I can tell your fire, paint with your words
Sing with your voice, nobody can take what's mine
From me
From me
From me
From me
