"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)

She passed by my window Lei passò per la mia finestra
Her eyes were all aglow I suoi occhi tutti un luccichio
And bent to pick her glove she’d dropped E si piegò per prendere il guanto cadutole
From the bright and brittle snow Dalla neve luccicante
Nature had spoken it in the Spring La natura aveva parlato con la Primavera
With apple, plum and brand new pear Con la mela, la prugna e una nuova pera
Have you time for my company? Hai tempo per la mia compagnia?
No, I said, I have none to spare No, risposi, non ne ho di libero
You gotta sanctify my love Devi santificare il mio amore
You gotta sanctify my love Devi santificare il mio amore
You gotta sanctify my love Devi santificare il mio amore
I ain´t no lover-boy Non sono uno da amare
For apple, plum and brand new pear Perché la mela la prugna e la nuova pera
Soon wither on the ground Presto appassiranno a terra
She slapped the snow from off her glove Lei scrollò la neve dal guanto
And moved on without a sound E si mosse senza un suono
You gotta sanctify my love Devi santificare il mio amore
You gotta sanctify my love Devi santificare il mio amore
You gotta sanctify my love Devi santificare il mio amore
I ain´t no lover-boy Non sono uno da amare
