lyrics

it was the day that Mary rose up into the sky
it was then I lost my dearest love
the angels they were singing Hosanna! on high
as my heart it sank like a dying dove

the virgin’s clothes were white and her radiance, it warmed
but mine were soiled in the dirt
as she journeyed to the son that she once held in her arms
I dug a hole for all the things that made you hurt

they sang
“Glory, Glory On High”
“Glory To The Seed That Falls And Dies”
“To The Seed That Falls And Dies”

her children searched the clouds for their mother gone above
but blue and white were all that they could see
when I look into your eyes I try to find your forgotten love
that you wrote and whispered you had for me

but they just sing
“Glory, Glory On High”
“Glory To The Seed That Falls And Dies”
“To The Seed That Falls And Dies”

sometimes she pays a visit to some small Mexican town
and when she goes she leaves for them her rose
and I often find myself wishing you’re around
or waiting for the day this yearning goes
or waiting for the day a flower grows
