Holding Absence – Saint Cecilia lyrics
[Verse 1]
The perfect cadence that I wish I could complete
You take me by surprise and sweep me off my feet
I've spent a lifetime thinking you and I should meet
You're in my eye line every time I dream

[Pre-Chorus]
Here's the thing... You make my heart sing

[Chorus]
Cecilia, I've lost your love
I've given up, I've had enough
Saint Cecilia, I tried my best but in the end nothing ever was enough
I've given up

[Verse 2]
Nowadays, I am nailed to your stave
I used to sleep for days - now I'm wide awake
What is there for you to do
When the thing that you live for is dying beside you?
That's the thing - You break my heartstrings

[Chorus]
Cecilia, I've lost your love
I've given up, I've had enough
Saint Cecilia, I tried my best but in the end nothing ever was enough
I've given up

[Bridge]
Here's the thing...
I tried my best but in the end nothing ever was enough
I've given up
Saint Cecilia, I tried my best but in the end nothing ever was enough
I've given up
