"The Gospel According To Darkness" as written by and Jane Siberry....
I know there's a place that you call your own
and you're safe and warm and you feel like yo're home
and the peace of it and the faith involved
and you go to say...but there's no need to explain it
still you try then you see that it's okay. you're on your own

i see you lookin' around at the people on the street
well, things aren't what they seem.
if you push them hard enough
you'll find that most of them do not feel worthy of love
now how did this come to be?

oh, my sweet darlin' *yes?* look at me. you're telling me you can't pierce
the darkness into the light? *yes.* can you see me? *no, ican't...*
can you see the figure standing on your right? *nobody. it's just
darkness...*
*it's just darkness...* come on, i know you understand. *i'm trying...*

love will you let us know when it's time
when we can leave this darkness behind?

oh, my sweet sweet darlin' *wait...* what? you know when you open up your
eyes?
*i'm afraid there won't be anyone there.* i'm beaming you all this light.
*wait.*
*something's happening...* who is it? *i'm holding my sweet mama in my arms*
is she dying? *no, i think she's just been born and she looks so...sweet...*
i know there's a place that you can call your own...*and she looks so
hopeful*
and you're safe and warm...*and she looks so...trusting*
and you feel like you're home...*she doesn't know how hard...*

i see you lookin' around at the people on the street
well, things aren't what they seem.
if you push hard enough
you'll find that most of them do not feel worthy of love
now how did this come to be?

i know there's a place that you call your own
