"Agnes" as written by and John Patrick Vivian Flynn....
I've learned a little bit
I've lost an awful lot
I know 10,000 people
And the best of the best I've forgot

I can't remember you though
I remember how we met
I fell a little graceless
And the pavement, oh the pavement
Won the bet

And in your gentle calling
All the tales spun and the bent
I heard the softer whisperings
That you were heaven sent
You were heaven, heaven sent

St. Agnes put your hair down
Tell your man to go to bed
And steal a kiss from fortunes lips
Before you, before you lift your head

And in your gentle calling
All the tales spun and the bent
I heard the softer whisperings
That you were heaven sent
You were heaven, heaven sent

I'll follow the line 'til I end in the waves
Follow it through 'til it transcend your grave
I'll stick in the mix with your feathers and wings
Marry me now that we're fingers and rings

I've waited for you since though
I've only known you're near
And in my darkest hour
Well I�ve had, oh I've had no need to fear

And in your gentle calling
All the tales spun and the bent
I heard the softer whisperings
That you were heaven sent
You were heaven, heaven sent

I'll follow the line 'til I end in the waves
Follow it through 'til it transcend your grave
I'll stick in the mix with your feathers and wings
Marry me now that we're fingers and rings
