"Bernadette" as written by and Christopher Corner....
You and me in our playhouse
Living in a veil
We never need to go without
Memories bring no joy or peace
We are alone
And all we need

Tuning out of the poison
Every waking day
Intolerance to overcome
Fortunes won by the boys with the guns
We are alone
Nowhere to run

Bernadette
You are my liberty
I celebrate the day
That you changed my history of
Life and death
Will always lead you into love and regret
But you have answers
And I have the key for the door to Bernadette

Winding down your emotions
Family and friends
Becoming ghosts to dream of and pass on
Time will erase every face every name
We are alone
No-one to blame

Bernadette
You are my liberty
I celebrate the day
That you changed my history of
Life and death
Will always lead you into love and regret
But you have answers
And I have the key
To Bernadette

    General CommentI don't know if Bernadette is a real woman but I suspect not. I think the carnivalesque swirl of this song is intended to convey her illusory status. She's the dreamgirl Chris hopes will make him whole, an imaginary being in the unhinged circus of these volatile times. Or, Chris Corner's ideal bearded lady. With her comes a new history of perpetual "nowness"; freedom and the abolition of his own loneliness through their shared loneliness. "Together as one, against all others"
