"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 is a town in north Ontario C'è una città nel nord dell'Ontario
And I take comfort from memories there E le memorie di lì mi confortano
And in my mind Nella mia mente
I still need a place to go ho ancora bisogno di un posto dove andare
All my best changes were there Tutti i miei cambiamenti migliori sono stati lì
Blue, blue windows behind the stars Finestre blu dietro alle stelle
Yellow moon on the rise Una gialla luna s'innalza
Big birds flying across the sky Grandi uccelli volano nel cielo
Throwing shadows on our eyes Gettando le loro ombre sui nostri occhi
Leave us helpless, helpless, helpless, helpless Ci lasciano indifesi
Baby, heal me now Baby, curami ora
The chains are locked and tied across the door Le catene sono chiuse sulla porta
They seem to help me somehow Sembrano aiutarmi in qualche modo
