Lyrics: 

She loved riding (needs music)

When she was just a toddler,
I took care of her, loved to hug her tight,
and for her second Christmas, Papa Jesus
brought her a rocking horse to ride…

Then she became a girlie:
“Can I sit on the front seat by your side?
daddy, you know too well that I love driving,
please, daddy, take me for a ride…”

(Chorus)
She loved riding, riding,
she loved to travel, she loved to roam,
she loved riding, riding,
she loved riding…
and though she rode too far, she did not find her home…
and though she rode too far, she did not find her home…

Then she became a teenie:
“Daddy, oh, daddy, please book me a flight,
want to travel with my boyfriend to Miami,
it´s a plane I`d like to ride…”

(Chorus)
She loved riding, riding,
she loved to travel, she loved to roam,
she loved riding, riding,
she loved riding…
and though she rode too far, she did not find her home…
and though she rode too far, she did not find her home…

She became a young lady:
“Daddy, this world is small, the skies are wide,
no, I just can`t take it no more, oh, daddy,
it´s a spaceship I want to ride…”

Then one day she stopped calling,
two days later I found out that she died,
all the pills scattered on the floor, a letter:
“now finally I found my ride…”

(Chorus)
She loved riding, riding,
she loved to travel, she loved to roam,
she loved riding, riding,
she loved riding…
and though she rode too far, she did not find her home…
and though she rode too far, she did not find her home…

Ooh isn’t this a story! I didn’t see that twist coming at the end. Kudos for exploring all the many definitions of ride through the lifetime of a girl. Good skirmishing with you!

Nice time progression sticking to and with variations on the theme. A tragic twist in the end. Well done on the skirmish!
