LYRICS

Just like St. Teresa

A crazy angel pierced the heart of St. Teresa
And I wish he’d do the same for me
A golden arrow flying like a sparrow
Into pain and ecstasy
In a stone grey sky, I am all demand and no supply
I will have a wander ‘round the village green
You’re a flower wet with rain
Pressing up against a windowpane
And I’m the one who’s stranded in a dream
I should try and quiet down my worried mind
Take it as it comes, try a little harder to be kind
Good friends are hard to find

Crazy angel, I can never understand you at all
But I’m taking what’s on offer
Life is the tapestry of your imagination
But I’m looking for something softer
In a stone grey sky, I am all demand and no supply
Waiting at the window, waiting by the door
Delsie, you’re a lighthouse guiding boats at sea
Back into the safety of the shore

Lord, let me die or let me suffer
Just like St. Teresa
Fill my heart with love
