All the sisters of mercy, they are not departed or gone.
They were waiting for me when I thought that I just cannot go on.
And they brought me their comfort, later they brought me this song.
Ah yes I hope you run into them, you who’ve been travelling so long.

Ra ra ra ra ra ra…
Yeah you who must leave everything that you cannot control.
It begins with your family, but soon it comes around to your soul.
Well I’ve been where you’re hanging and I think I can see how you’re pinned:

Yeah when you’re not feeling holy, your loneliness tells you, you’ve sinned.

Ra ra ra ra ra ra…

They lay down beside me, I made my confession to them.
They touched both my eyes, I touched the dew on their hem.
If your life is a leaf that the seasons tear off and condemn
Ah they will bind you with love that is graceful and green as a stem.

Ra ra ra ra ra ra…

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:
Ah we weren’t lovers like that and besides it would still be all right,
