Sisters of Mercy

All the sisters of mercy they are not departed or gone
They are waiting for me when I thought that I just can't go on
And they brought me thier comfort and later they brought me this song
Oh I hope you run in them, you who've been travelling so long

You who must leave everything that you cannot control
It begins with your fam but soon it comes round to your soul
I've been where you're hanging, I think I can see where you're pinned
When you're not feeling holy your loneliness tells you, you've sinned

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 reaf 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 in them soon
Don't turn on the light, you can read their address by the moon
And you won't make me jealous if I hear they sweetened your night
We weren't lovers like that and besides it would still be alright
