I cried for you…

Soms valt een liedje als een steen op je hart, zoals nu. En dan met zulke beelden…

Het zou een pracht van ode aan transgenders kunnen zijn maar gaat eigenlijk over de Gnostische legende van de vlucht van Maria Magdalena van Golgota naar Frankrijk terwijl ze in verwachting is van het kind van Jezus. De Davinci Code revisited maar geef mij die ode maar als uitleg.

You’re beautiful so silently

It lies beneath a shade of blue
It struck me so violently
When I looked at you

But others pass, they never pause
To feel that magic in your hand
To me you’re like a wild rose
They never understand why

I cried for you
When the sky cried for you
And when you went
I became a hopeless drifter
But this life was not for you
Though I learned from you
That beauty need only be a whisper

I’ll cross the sea for a different world
With your treasure, a secret for me to hold

In many years they may forget
This love of ours or that we met
They may not know
How much you meant to me

I cried for you
And the sky cried for you
And when you went
I became a hopeless drifter
But this life was not for you
Though I learned from you
That beauty need only be a whisper

Without you now I see
How fragile the world can be
And I know you’ve gone away
But in my heart you’ll always stay

I cried for you
When the sky cried for you
And when you went
I became a hopeless drifter
But this life was not for you
Though I learned from you
That beauty need only be a whisper
That beauty need only be a whisper
