Magdalene

 

 

Magdalene, are you thinking of the gentle man

Who turned your life around

Magdalene, did he leave you any reason to go on

Magdalene, does it make it any better

That you know he really loved you

Magdalene, all your sins have been forgiven, and he's gone

 

Magdalene, did he give you back the freedom

To be something you believe in

Magdalene, are you strong enough to make it on your own

Magdalene, I believe he loved you deeper

Than you ever dreamed of loving

Magdalene, and nobody ever left you so alone

 

Oh, Magdalene....

 

Magdalene, are the shadows in the stillness

Of the evening full of tears

Do you wonder how much sorrow you can hold

Are you haunted by the ghost of something

Gone but not forgotten

Will it fill the empty silence when you're old

 

Magdalene, are you thinking of the gentle man

Who turned your life around

Magdalene, Did he leave you any reason to go on

Magdalene, I believe he loved you deeper

Than you ever dreamed of loving

Magdalene, all your sins have been forgiven, and he's gone
