Song Meaning
Verse 1
Oh the sisters of mercy
They are not departed or gone
They were waiting for me
When I thought that I just can't go on
Verse 2
And they brought me their comfort
And later they brought me this song
Oh I hope you run into them
You who've been traveling so long.
Verse 3
Yes, you who must leave everything
That you cannot control
It begins with your family
But soon it comes around to your soul
Verse 4
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.
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
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.
Verse 7
When 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
Verse 8
And you won't make me jealous
If I hear that they sweetened your night
We weren't lovers like that
And besides it would still be all right
Verse 9
We weren't lovers like that
And besides it would still be all right
