Calling All Angels

Jane Siberry & kd lang

Santa Maria, Santa Teresa, Santa Anna, Santa Susannah

Santa Cecilia, Santa Copelia, Santa Domenica, Mary Angelica

Frater Achad, Frater Pietro, Julianus, Petronilla

Santa, Santos, Miroslaw, Vladimir

and all the rest

a man is placed upon the steps, a baby cries

and high above the church bells start to ring

and as the heaviness the body oh the heaviness settles in

somewhere you can hear a mother sing

then it’s one foot then the other as you step out onto the road

how much weight? how much weight?

then it’s how long? and how far?

and how many times before it’s too late?

calling all angels

calling all angels

walk me through this one

don’t leave me alone

calling all angels

calling all angels

we’re tryin’ and we’re hopin’

and we’re not sure how this goes

and every day you gaze upon the sunset

with such love and intensity

it’s almost…it’s almost as if

if you could only crack the code

then you’d finally understand what this all means

but if you could…do you think you would

trade in all the pain and suffering?

ah, but then you’d miss

the beauty of the light upon this earth

and the sweetness of the leaving

{REPEAT) calling all angels…
