Holy Innocence

Holy Innocence

Even angels fall in love, really—

I was afraid and guilty of sin
I was corrupting an innocent mind
On that very day my heart saw you.


On that very day
my heart saw you
It leapt with divine joy
That a soul
as gentle as you was created
For I was to escape
From the stinging slum of hypocrites.


If it were enough
to sit without words
What do you think
I wouldn’t have told you?
How I wished you’d just to go away
Never to come back again
I should’ve listened
To ya’ silent voice then
I should have known
Right from the start
Mine were just holy emotions.


Since that single day
I just feel
Count on the words we shared
Deep down
They burn me even today
Knowing that I love you
Yet you can’t
I ought not to feel that way
Men of the cloth don’t
These holy emotions
Kill me babe.
