Jimmy was a shadow the youngest of three boys
How he longed to feel the light 
Jimmy's older brothers sure could make some noise 
So he became the quiet type

But deep inside he had some powerful dreams
He'd think about them then he'd smile 

And he was gone, gone to somewhere far beyond  Where he was strong, strong, shining in the sun
They say that someday the meekest heart will sing
 There was Jimmy waiting in the wings 

 Susie was a waitress morning, noon and night 
But she never did complain 
Jimmy'd stop for lunch there at least a thousand times
But one Monday something changed 

She leaned across him with some chocolate pie
Then he looked into her eyes

And he was gone, gone to somewhere far beyond 
His heart beat strong, strong, he knew she was the one
They say that someday the meekest heart will sing
Love found Jimmy waiting in the wings 

And when he held her for the very first time
He found the one thing he'd been missing all his life

And they were gone, gone, to somewhere far beyond
