Cathedral Song



I saw from the cathedral
You were watching me
Yes I saw from the cathedral
What I should be

So take my time

And take my lies
'Cos all the others, they want to take my life

And I watch with an intent, basic

Well It's the same for you
You hold your hand
And it's all fine - laced and
What would you make me do?

So take my time

And take my lies
'Cos all the others, they want to take my life

Serious for the winter time

To wrench my soul
whole cotton, whole cotton ears
But I know there must be
Yes, I know there must be,
Yes, I know there must be a place to go

And you saw me from the cathedral

Well I'm an ancient heart
Yes, you saw me from the cathedral
And here we are just falling apart

You catch me

I am tired
I want all that you are

And I saw from the cathedral

You were leaving me
Yes I saw from the cathedral
You could not see to see

So take my time

And take my lies
'Cos all the others, they want to take my life

Tanita Tikaram from her album 'Ancient Heart'

Diane Love, a beautiful music, life without the warm and delicate feeling would be a sad existence, often contemplative hours it helps a little to brighten the soul, even if it seems minimal to us, it's the little sun beams from the large system,
liebe ♥ Grüße von Jasmin

dianne said...

Jasmin Love, yes a beautiful song, it has a special place in my heart; it has a connection to someone where there was once warmth and affection, maybe there is still something to hope for.
You say the loveliest things, yes little sun beams that we must hold onto as they brighten the quiet and lonely hours.

Beautiful album. I bought it right out in the 80's, and both wear the cassette listen. A marvel. Besos.

foam said...

she has an amazing alto voice. i'm not very familiar with her but i remember 'twist in my sobriety' which i really, really liked. i like this song very much too.

dianne said...

Thanks dear Leovi , yes 'Ancient Heart' is a beautiful album with some favourite songs ... 'Valentine Heart', 'Twist in my Sobriety' and others.

Besos xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Thank you dearest Foamy , yes she does have an amazing voice, I love this song and also 'twist in my sobriety'.
I had originally posted 'valentine heart' from the same album but decided to save it to my 'drafts', it was too sad for me to post at present ... it has an association with someone I am missing.
