Hoeveel verschrikking kan een mens aan?

... Japan ... Alphen ... Baflo (of all places) ... woorden schieten tekort





I don’t believe in an interventionist god
But I know, darling, that you do
But if I did I would kneel down and ask him
Not to intervene when it came to you
Not to touch a hair on your head
To leave you as you are
And if he felt he had to direct you
Then direct you into my arms

Into my arms, o lord
Into my arms, o lord
Into my arms, o lord
Into my arms

And I don’t believe in the existence of angels
But looking at you I wonder if that’s true
But if I did I would summon them together
And ask them to watch over you
To each burn a candle for you
To make bright and clear your path
And to walk, like christ, in grace and love
And guide you into my arms

Into my arms, o lord
Into my arms, o lord
Into my arms, o lord
Into my arms

But I believe in love
And I know that you do too
And I believe we can choose our path
And we can walk then, me and you
So keep those candles burning
And make her journey bright and pure
That she will keep returning
Always and evermore

Into my arms, o lord
Into my arms, o lord
Into my arms, o lord
Into my arms




Luister echt even naar dit nummer, het is van de CD The boatman’s call. Ik heb een aantal CD’s van Nick Cave, maar dit is wel een van de mooiste!
