Sisters of Mercy
All the sisters of mercy, they are not departed or gone They were waiting for me when I thought that I just can't go on And they brought me their comfort and later they brought me this song Oh, I hope you run into them, you who've been travelling so long Yes, you who must leave everything that you cannot control It begins with your family, but soon it comes around to your soul Well, I've been where you're hanging, I think I can see how you're pinned When you're not feeling holy, your loneliness says that you've sinned Well, they lay down beside me, I made my confession to them They touched both my eyes and I touched the dew on their hem If your life is a leaf that the seasons tear off and condemn They will bind you with love that is graceful and green as a stem When I left they were sleeping, I hope you run into them soon Don't turn on the lights, you can read their address by the moon And you won't make me jealous if I hear that they sweetened your night We weren't lovers like that and besides, it would still be all right We weren't lovers like that and besides, it would still be all right
