St. Cecilia

It’s when you wonder where you’re from
It’s in her eyes and then it’s gone
You search to find there is none;
No way to light the pathway
As you blindly stumble on

Wasn’t I the one who swore to never try?
To swim the river deep, to scale the mountain high?
Until I’d learned to pray
To St. Cecilia

Breathes like a sigh and then it’s gone
Flickers like the light that shone
Down from the humid sky
So you and I swam
I’ll take you there, our places shared
And then I’ll learn to pray to St. Cecilia
I’ll never find a way to understand
If I do what you do

Wasn’t I the one who swore never to try?
To swim the river deep, to scale the mountain high?
Until I’d learned to pray
To St. Cecilia
