Lyrics

SONG OF BERNADETTE
Written by Jennifer Warnes, Leonard Cohen and Bill Elliott

There was a child named Bernadette
I heard the story long ago
She saw the Queen of Heaven once
And kept the vision in her soul
No one believed what she had seen
No one believed what she had heard
That there are sorrows to be healed
And mercy, mercy in this world

So many hearts I find
Hearts like yours and mine
Torn by what we've done and can't undo
I just want to hold you
Come on, let me hold you
Like Bernadette would do

We've been around, we fall, we fly
We've mostly fallen, we've mostly run
And every now and then we've tried
To mend the damage that we've done
Tonight, tonight I cannot rest
I've got this joy here inside my breast
To think that I did not forget
That child, that song of Bernadette

So many hearts I find
Broke like yours and mine
Torn by what we've done and can't undo
I just want to hold you
Come on, let me hold you
Like Bernadette would do

Come on let me hold you
Won't you let me hold you
Like Bernadette would do
