There is a feeling I get
And it captures me but for a moment or two
Another romantic adventure
That fades in the name of something else new

But that's not how I feel when I am around her
In fact it's not like that at all

Instead it's like I'm coming home
And I've finally found where I've always belonged
And all my foolish distractions
Well I won't be needing them anymore

And alone I am frightened but with her I can
Lay me down, lay me down and let her know who I really am
And when she's near by all my selfish pride fades away

Yeah
And she dreams of a love that won't change
Yeah
Like the sanctified saint that bears her name

She covers her eyes when she prays
Cause she finds it so hard just believing in grace
Cause hers is a heart that is torn between longing for love and hating what shes become

Oh would she be surprised if she looked through my eyes
And saw how she shimmered like a full moon sky
And would all of those demons that live in her mind fade away

Yeah
And she willing bears all the pain
Yeah
Like the sanctified saint that bears her name
That bears her name

She gently whispers when she speaks of her pain
And the words cut me through like a torrent of rain
She's longing for shelter where she'll be safe and warm ever more

Yeah
And she hides from the signs of her fame
Yeah
And she willingly bears all the pain
Yeah
And she dreams of a love that won't change
Yeah
Like the sanctified saint that bears her name
That bears her name
