about

There's this un-named character - the mystical Lady Wisdom referred to in the 3000 year old middle eastern manuscript known as the book of Proverbs. In this song she's called Sophia.

lyrics

There’s this lady you should hear her
She’s calling in the street
Inviting the attention of everyone she meets
Yet she seems to go unnoticed
By most who pass her by
Despite her best attempt to look us in the eye

She says I am called Sophia, wisdom is my name
I’ve been here a long, long time
Way before you came
If you choose to love me
You can hear these words I say
And if you really listen
Then I’m as plain as day.

(chorus)
Oh, rubies could not buy her
And gold would be too cheap
Life itself is in the very words she breathes….
Sophia sing to me…

Now I have squandered many years
Chasing fame and gold
Wondering who I really am
In all the highs and lows
But when I choose her company
And accept her bid to dine
Then I am satisfied
With a feast I could not buy

(chorus)
Oh, rubies could not buy her
And gold would be too cheap
Life itself is in the very words she breathes….
Sophia sing to me…
