Sweet Eva

(Nicole Unser)

 

This ain’t just another song with a bunch of clever hooks

It’s a song about a woman who was sometimes overlooked

That’s how it goes when you live your life to serve

So we’re here to take some time to give her the honor she deserves

 

CHORUS

Sweet Eva

You moved and swayed through this life with grace

And though tears may roll down our face

We will, always feel, the love and warmth of your embrace

We know you wouldn’t want tears in our eyes

So today we celebrate your life

Of honor, of courage, of sacrifice

Sweet Eva

 

She wouldn’t want her name in bright neon lights

But all our lives were changed ‘cause she loved with all her might

Everybody else called her Eva but she called me her son

And I guess that you could say I’m lucky son of a gun

 

CHORUS

Sweet Eva

You moved and swayed through this life with grace

And though tears may roll down our face

We will, always feel, the love and warmth of your embrace

We know you wouldn’t want tears in our eyes

So today we celebrate your life

Of honor, of courage, of sacrifice

Sweet Eva

 

You showed us how to live a good life

We’ll do our best to make you proud

We’ll try to get it right

 

CHORUS

Sweet Eva

You moved and swayed through this life with grace

And though tears may roll down our face

We will, always feel, the love and warmth of your embrace

We know you wouldn’t want tears in our eyes

So today we celebrate your life

Of honor, of courage, of sacrifice

Sweet Eva
