Father, sister

Father, sister, dearest voices
I have found you and I don't know how
Father, sister, I hear your voices
But am I dreaming or are you here right now?
Can you tell me...

[chorus]
How shall I see you through my tears (Please tell me)
How shall I see you through my tears (I need to know)
How shall I see you through my tears (Yeah)

Father, sister, the gods have spoken
I bring a promise, a holy vow
A world that casts you out won't kiss you
And those who blame you sing your praises now
So can you tell me...

[chorus]

Destiny brings you back to me

Child I'm so glad I'm here
There's hope for me
There's a prophecy


Destiny brings you back to me
A world that casts you out
Will forgive you now
Destiny brings you back to me

I've been waiting for a sign
To ease my troubled mind

Ooooh...

[chorus]

How shall I see you through my tears(When I'm crying tears of sadness)
How shall I see you through my tears (Won't you turn them to tears of gladness)
How shall I see you through my tears, (Gladness, oh)

Tears, tears, tears

    General CommentNice song. But I wonder... It sounds like this girl's father and sister were exiled and she's calling out for them. Or they've been gone such a long time and she can't help but weep (destiny brought them together) and she's recieved a word from the...gods. Maybe she's crying 'cuz they went through all that and now they're old. But forgiven... Somebody help me out!

    General CommentThis song is originally from the Black Harlem Theater's "Gospel at Colonus". It's basically a theatrical blending Greek tragedy and Gospel soul. Check out the original interpretation on youtube.
