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
