Music icon Patti Smith pays tribute to Amy Winehouse on her new album “Banga.”

Banga is the 65-year-old’s 11th album and includes a tribute song “This Is The Girl” to Amy Winehouse.

The Because the Night hit-maker put her feelings into a poem following Amy Winehouse’s passing, and she later turned her musings into a song.

“This Is The Girl” is one of the most delightful and touching songs Patti Smith has ever recorded.

Here are the lyrics to “This Is The Girl”…

This Is The Girl Lyrics

This is the girl for whom all tears fall
This is the girl who was having a ball
Just a dark smear masking the eyes
Smeared it away, blurring in size

This is the girl that crossed the line
This is the song of that smothering vine
Twisted as laurels to crown her head
Raised as a wreath upon her bed

This is the girl

This is the blood that turned into wine
This is the wine of the house it is said
This is the girl who yearned to be heard
So much for cradling a smouldering bird

This is the girl
This is the girl

This is the girl for all tears fallen
This is the girl that’s having a ball
This is the girl for whom all tears are shed
This is the wine of the house it is said

This is the blood that turned into wine
This is the wine of the house it is said
This is the girl who yearned to be heard
So much for cradling a smouldering bird

This is the girl
This is the girl
This is the girl
