The Holy Secret

Song Type: , , ,

LYRICS:
In the beginning there was you and there was me.
We fit perfectly together in harmony.
We were golden, we were fire,
Inspiration and desire from the start.
Then the world cracked wide and fell apart.

In the beginning, did we ever disagree?
Did we ever break the stifling serenity?
We were quick to compromise.
Lived a thousand harmless lies, but now I know:
When the world cracked wide, it let us go.

And that’s The Holy Secret,
The thing you need to know:
You’ve got to fall to pieces.
To let the pieces grow.

Strange how things accumulate.
One can only hope the stress’ll
Tear the bond and break the vessel
Before the loving turns to hate.

I am beginning to recover who I am,
To discover what’s ahead in the world for me.
I’m going somewhere; where it is, I couldn’t say,
But I know that I’ll be changing as I make my way.
If I feel a little sad
When I think what we once had, it’s not a sin.
‘Cuz when the world cracked wide, it let me in.

And that’s The Holy Secret.
The thing you need to know.
You’ve got to fall to pieces
To let the pieces grow.
