Sisters Of Mercy Lyrics

Sisters of Mercy (《莱奥纳德·科恩:我是你的男人》纪录片插曲) - Beth Orton

Sisters of mercy they are not

Departed or gone

 

They were waiting for me

When I thought

That I just cant go on

 

And they brought me their comfort

And later they brought me this song

 

O I hope you run into them

You whove been traveling so long

 

Yes you who must leave everything

That you cannot control

 

It begins with your family

But soon it comes round 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 them

 

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 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 into 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 that they sweeten 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
