Lady Fushcia was written by Dave Cousins of the Strawbs in the early 1970s. I still feel akin to Lady Fuschia; song brings me to tears. Part of who I was and am.

 

A child denied all love can’t weep
But bravely bears her life alone
So Fuschia as you try to sleep
You dream of friends you’ve never known

In troubled years when no-one cared
You searched for comfort everywhere
For heavy burdens never shared
Become too much for one to bear

So much to give but those who live
don’t know of you
Your fantasy
of love to be
Cannot come true
Oh Lady Fuschia
Oh Lady Fuschia

Now poised above the castle walls
She looks your last on lonely skies
Night owls pray for her as they call
Returning ere the dawn shall rise.

Your loveless life
has led you here
Not knowing why
Your troubled mind’s
No longer clear
to live or die
Oh Lady Fuschia
Oh Lady Fuschia.
Oh Lady Fuschia
Oh Lady Fuschia.
