"Augustine" as written by and Vienna Teng....
Oh my god
What have I done
Chasing some mirage in my Mojave sun
Don't say every chance is lost,
Please don't say anything at all

In sand and thorns
I'm walking forth
Bare and blinking as the day that I was born
Bells in spires of China white
Ring for an Augustine tonight

Oh now, I'm breaking down
Oh let me be
Let me be your Augustine

Lead me now
I understand
Faith is both the prison and the open hand
Bells on low on high
Will you ring for Augustine tonight

Oh now I'm breaking down,
Every illusion in between
All the lies that I have seen
Oh let me be your Augustine

    General Commentthis song says something of lost chances and never being able to go back again. I can't quite interperet it any other way. It seems really sad.

    Song MeaningBefore she sang this at a Nashville concert, Vienna said, "This is for the religious experience I haven't had yet." I was so happy to hear that description of this song, because it so perfectly captures this song for me. It is about faith, and the desperate desire to be faithful, to be loved in the arms of the one you find most holy. It is the most beautiful song I've ever heard, and it stirs such a deep desire in me for grace.
