Sisters Of Mercy Lyrics

Oh 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
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
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
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.
