"Joanni" as written by and Kate Bush....
All the banners stop waving
And the flags stop flying
And the silence comes over
Thousands of soldiers
Thousands of soldiers

Who is that girl? Do I know her face?
Who is that girl?

Joanni, Joanni wears a golden cross
And she looks so beautiful in her armour
Joanni, Joanni blows a kiss to God
And she never wears a ring on her finger

All the cannon are firing
And the swords are clashing
And the horses are charging
And the flags are flying
And the battle is raging
And the bells, the bells are ringing

Who is that girl? Do I know her face?
Who is that girl?

Joanni, Joanni wears a golden cross
And she looks so beautiful in her armor
Joanni, Joanni blows a kiss to God
And she never wears a ring on her finger
Joanni, Joanni, Joanni, Joanni blows a kiss to God
And she just looks beautiful in her armor
Beautiful in her armor

    General CommentIt's about Joan of Arc.

    General CommentWhy yes, it is. This is such a beautiful song...very atmospheric and delicate. The image of Joan of Arc blowing a kiss to God is very moving. Kate's choice of name for the song is quite something since it personifies Joan as a real person rather than this figurehead in history. Such a lovely song!

    General CommentThis is the first one that GRABBED me off Aerial, and it's still in my top 10 Kate Bush.
    This song reminds me of something that could've been on The Dreaming (album), especially the ending. So, so beautiful. *sigh*
