"Gloria" as written by and Mack/kaper David....
A brave morning thoughts flap their wings and fly and I can still taste defeat
On my lips bright tie fish fly I have not yet arrived how can I not admit I
Need to know you cause I just want to be something more than the mud in your
Eyes I want to be the clay in your hands hey sorrow where are you tomorrow just

Won't be the same without you here I'll wish for shoulders bold and broad to
Bear and strength to hold my head above them cause I just want to be something
More than the mud in your eyes I want to be the clay in your hands cause
Gloria is silent gloria is silent gloria is silent and glory is a silent thing.

    Something more than the mud in your eyes
    I want to be the clay in your hands."

    This is one of the MOST brilliantly beautiful versus in a song that I've ever heard.

    General CommentThis song really makes me cry, and I mean that.
    It's like something I always wanted to say to a girl and never had the chance to, cause we don't really live in a movie... *sigh*

    General Commentyou know... cause it's mineral... i can see why you could think that, about the whole God thing. But something tells me that this song is not about God -- I really want to believe that this song could be describing the love a man has for a woman. I want to believe that it could be true and that beautiful.

    General Commenti agree with a perfect sonnet. this is more about the love a man has for a woman and the beauty of pure love. sculpted from clay. it's so gorgeous. ....wow. amazing

    General CommentWhen it comes to the song being about God or not, this is what I have to say:

    I don't believe this song is about God, however the phrase "mud in your eyes" IS Biblical; Jesus shoves mud into a blind man's eyes, and when he rinses it away, he can see.

    And the Bible also references clay many times, and for humans to be molded by the hands of God like clay.

    Still, I don't think it is about God, but I really like those references, because it is like saying "I want to be more than a catalyst in improving your life, I want to BE your life. I want to be molded and changed and integrated into you."

    That's what I got out of it.
