Song Analysis: Songbird

Not the 1987 instrumental hit by Kenny G.
The 1978 vocal hit by Barbra Streisand.

This song focuses on a woman who's a healer of sorts.  When someone's in distress or broken in spirit she's called upon to sing her special song, which seems to have a metaphysical effect of calming that person down and restoring their strength, faith, and emotional stamina.

However, when she's the one who needs restoring and reassurance she finds herself all alone with no-one there to help, assist, or guide her.
She ends up having to completely carry her own weight.  The "wizard" can't seem to work the same "magic" on herself with that "special song" of hers.
