She stands before you naked
You can see it, you can taste it
And she comes to you light as the breeze
Now you can drink it or you can nurse it
It don't matter how you worship
As long as you're down on your knees

So I knelt there at the delta
At the alpha and the omega
At the cradle of the river and the seas
And like a blessing come from Heaven
For something like a second
I was healed and my heart was at ease

Oh baby I waited
So long for your kiss
For something to happen
Oh something like this

And you're weak and you're harmless
And you're sleeping in your harness
And the wind going wild in the trees
And it ain't exactly prison
But you'll never be forgiven
For whatever you've done with the keys

Oh baby I waited
So long for your kiss
For something to happen
Oh something like this

It's dark now and it's snowing
O my love I must be going
The river has started to freeze
And I'm sick of pretending
I'm broken from bending
I've lived too long on my knees

Then she dances so graceful
And your heart's hard and hateful
And she's naked but that's just a tease
And you turn in disgust
From your hatred and from your love
And she comes to you light as the breeze

Oh baby I waited
So long for your kiss
For something to happen
Oh something like this
Something like this

There's blood on every bracelet
You can see it, you can taste it
And it's please baby, please baby, please
And she says, "Drink deeply, pilgrim
But don't forget there's still a woman
Beneath this resplendent chemise"

So I knelt there at the delta
At the alpha and the omega
I knelt there like one who believes
And the blessings come from Heaven
And for something like a second
I'm cured and my heart is at ease
