Once I had a child,
he was wilder than moonlight.
He could do it all,
like he'd been here before.

Once I had a child,
she was smiling like sunshine.
She could see it all,
like she'd been here before.

Then I had a child.
Took his while like northern summer
and he knows it all
like he's been here before.

    General CommentAmazing song. I don't think words can describe how beautiful it is. The words could fit the reverend mothers from the dune storyline perfectly. I don't think its about dune though, maybe reincarnation who knows. A very personal tune it sounds like nevertheless.
