Morning prayers took the girl unawares
She was late for class and she knew it
The broadcaster had a voice that was soothing
She couldn't tell if it was a man or woman
A patch of sun fell onto her desk
She put her head on her arms, on her neck

The lesson today was the act of apostle
The crazy hippies, they're running scared
She shut her eyes and imagined the desert
No cars, no mobiles, just sun and bread
What would she look like standing by the well?
More like a women and less like a girl

Oh, if I could make sense of it all
I wish that I could sing
I'd stay in a melody
I would float along in my everlasting song
What would I do to believe?

Later on she plays 'Morning Has Broken'
She knows she's bad
She is slowing everybody down
The choirmaster, usually a bastard, knows her mother's sick
He'll be nice to her
She thinks that she shouldn't be there at all
Her worries make everything else seem trivial

Oh, if I could make sense of it all
I wish that I could sing
I'd stay in a melody
I would float along in my everlasting song
What would I do to believe?
