"In a garden full of roses my hands were tied behind me
My Cousin was working miracles, I wondered if he'd find me
The moon was turned toward me like a platter made of gold
My death, it almost bored me so often was it told"

("Mercy", 1988)

I got a blue bird, Ho un uccello blu
a blue bird on my shoulder Un uccello blu appoggiato sulla spalla
I got a blue bird, Ho un uccello blu
a blue bird on my shoulder Un uccello blu appoggiato sulla spalla
I saw her standing, L'ho vista in piedi
standing by the water In piedi vicino all'acqua
She was naked, Lei era nuda
her hair in great disorder Coi capelli molto spettinati
And I know that I fly E so perché sto volando
and the rest is lie E il resto sono bugie
I sent a warning, Ho inviato un avvertimento
a warning of disaster Un avvertimento di disastro
I sent a warning, Ho inviato un avvertimento
I warned of great disaster Ho avvertito di un grande disastro imminente
I sent that blue bird, Ho mandato quell'uccello blu
a blue bird down the water L'uccello blu lungo l'acqua
I sent that blue bird, Ho mandato quell'uccello blu
floating down the water Che galleggia sull'acqua
And I know that I fly E so perché sto volando
and the rest is lie E il resto sono solo bugie
