Lyrics
Nobody comes to the ballroom floor to share a dance with her,
Nobody breathes her beauty like the spirit of the wind,
Nobody rises to take her hand when she is feeling low,
Nobody close or distant kin,

Nobody dreams of her gentle touch or of her guiding love,
Nobody knows it's flowing like the river of the Nile,
Nobody seeks her wisdom, she simply knows her Father's plan,
Nobody understands her smile,

Refrain:

But when she is all alone,
And lost deep in prayer,
Her spirit will rise into the air,

Revealing a higher truth,
A life free of care,
Revealing the joy she doesn't share,
Revealing the secret of St. Clare,
-

When Francis was young he knew her beauty as a little child,
Then as she grew he loved her like the fragrance of the rose,
But he made a choice to free his mind to glorify his God,
The love that was lost nobody knows,

St. Francis believed in a light beyond the glow of St. Clare's love,
Though she was the one who showed him what a woman's love could be,
Sometimes he wondered about the life they could have led in time,
Of sharing a home and family,

Refrain:

But when he was all alone,
And lost deep in prayer,
His spirit would rise into the air,

Revealing a higher truth,
A life free of care,
Revealing her love was always there,
Revealing the secret of St. Clare,
