"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)

Once there was a song C'era una volta una canzone
The song yearned to be sung Che fremeva per essere cantata
It was a spinning song about the king of Rock 'n' Roll Era una canzone a spirale, sul Re del Rock & Roll
The king was first a young prince In principio il Re era un giovane principe
The prince was the best Il principe era il migliore
With his black jelly hair he crashed onto a stage in Vegas Coi suoi capelli neri ingellati, finì su un palco a Las Vegas
The king had a queen Il Re aveva una Regina
The queen's hair was a stairway I capelli della Regina erano una scalinata
She tended the castle garden Lei curava il giardino del castello
And in the garden planted a tree E nel giardino piantò un albero
The garden tree was a stairway, it was sixteen branches high L'albero era una scalinata, alta sedici rami
On the top branch was a nest, sing the high cloudy nest Sul ramo più alto c'era un nido, il cui canto si spargeva fra le nuvole
In the nest was a bird Nel nido c'era un uccello
The bird had a wing L'uccello aveva un'ala
The wing had a feather, spin the feather and sing the wind L'ala aveva una piuma
The king in time died La piuma girava e il vento cantava
The queen's heart broke like a vow Col tempo il Re morì
And the tree returned to the earth Il cuore della Regina si ruppe come un voto
With the nest and the bird E l'alberò tornò alla terra
But the feather spun upward Insieme al nido e all'uccello
Upward and upward Ma la piuma filò verso l'alto, sempre più in alto
Spinning all the weather vanes Girando tutte le rose dei venti
And you're sitting at the kitchen table, listening to the radio Mentre tu siedi al tavolo della cucina, ascoltando la radio
And I love you, and I love you, and I love you, and I love you Ed io ti amo
And I love you, and I love you, and I love you Io ti amo
Peace will come, a peace will come, a peace will come in time La pace verrà
A time will come, a time will come, a time will come for us Arriverà la pace, a suo tempo
Peace will come, a peace will come, a peace will come in time Un tempo verrà
A time will come, a time will come, a time will come for us Verrà un tempo per noi
