"I don't believe in an interventionist God, but I know, darling, that you do
but if I did I would kneel down and ask Him
not to intervene when it came to you
not to touch a hair on your head to leave you as you are
And if He felt He had to direct you then direct you into my arms"

("Into My Arms", 1998)

There she stands, this lovely creature Eccola lì, questa creatura amabile
There she stands, there she stands Eccola lì, eccola lì
With her hair full of ribbons Coi suoi capelli pieni di nastri
And green gloves on her hands E guanti verdi sulle mani
So I asked this lovely creature Allora ho chiesto a questa creatura amabile
Yes, I asked. Yes I asked Si,le ho chiesto. Si, le ho chiesto.
Would she walk with me a while Se voleva passeggiare con me un pochino
Through this night so fast In questa notte così fitta
She took my hand, this lovely creature Lei mi prese la mano, questa creatura amabile
"Yes", she said, "Yes", she said "Si" rispose, "Si" rispose
"Yes, I'll walk with you a while" "Si, passeggerò con te un pochino"
It was a joyful man she led E fu un uomo felice quello che la seguì
Over hills, this lovely creature Oltre le colline, questa creatura amabile
Over mountains, over ranges Oltre le montagne, oltre le catene
By great pyramids and sphinxs Presso le grandi piramidi e le sfingi
We met drifters and strangers Incontrammo vagabondi e sconosciuti
Oh the sands, my lovely creature Oh le sabbie, la mia creatura amabile
And the mad, moaning winds E il folle, lamentoso vento
At night the deserts writhed Di notte i deserti pullulavano
With diabolical things Di cose diaboliche
Through the night, through the night Nella notte, nella notte
The wind lashed and it whipped me Il vento colpiva e mi frustava
When I got home, my lovely creature Quando giunsi a casa, la mia creatura amabile
She was no longer with me Lei non era più con me
Somewhere she lies, this lovely creature Giace da qualche parte, questa creatura amabile
Beneath the slow drifting sands Sotto le sabbie che lente si accumulano
With her hair full of ribbons Con i capelli pieni di nastri
And green gloves on her hands E guanti verdi sulle mani
