The wife forgave the mistress
For she only entertained
The pain was gone the instant
She cleared her throat to speak her name
Said, "Both of us must suffer
From this same unending ache"

The world was not of interest
Though her days were never dull
Her bed beneath a crucifix
On guests performing miracles
With the Son of God just hanging like a common criminal
"When I do wrong, I am with God,"
"When I feel lost, I am not at all"

She went to see a mystic
Who made medicine from rain
And gave up her existence
To feel everything, dream other's dreams
Bid farewell to her family
With one ecstatic wave
Out the window as the car rolled away
She just vanished into a thick mist of change

Oh i've made love, yeah yeah i've been fucked
