about

As with all Catholics, I was born wicked and dirty and lived out my days in a fog of guilt until I was released by a truly divine creature.

lyrics

Lift up your voice
Lift it up to the lord
Glory to God
To forgetting what's done
I ate the bread, drunk the wine
Oh, I'm fine

It's not your fault
And there is nothing wrong
It's just like a dream
I have now and then
When you sleep by the light of the moon,
My love

If I could mend
Your happiness
I'd creep like a cat
Curl up on your chest
Soldier, lay down the needles and
Smoke to rest

Ever you wake,
You burn through the night
As I fail under
Your heavenly light
Bright as the daybreak
And deep as the sea
You and me

He's got your eyes
Your beautiful eyes
The bird in your hand
The stars in your skies
Shine on, shine on forever
I'll hold you, I'll hold you
I'll make a wish upon you.
