“I cried a tear, you wiped it dry, I was confused, you cleared my mind, I sold my soul, you bought it back for me, and held me up and gave me dignity. You gave me strength to stand alone again, to face the world out on my own again. You held my hand when it was cold, when I was lost, you took me home. You gave me hope when I was at the end” – Anne Murray
