Aaron Neville – Song Of Bernadette lyrics

(leonard cohen, jennifer warnes, bill elliott)
Duet with linda ronstadt

There was a child named bernadette
I heard the story long ago
She saw the queen of heaven once
And kept the vision in her soul
No one believed what she had seen
No one believed what she heard
But there was sorrows to be
And mercy, mercy in this world

So many hearts I find, broke like yours and mine
Torn by what we've done and can't undo
I just want to hold you, won't you let me hold you
Like bernadette would do

We've been around, we fall, we fly
We mostly fall, we mostly run
And every night, and then we try
To mend the damage that we've done
Tonight, tonight I can not rest
I've got this joy inside my breast
To think that I did not forget that child
That song of bernadette

So many hearts I find, broke like yours and mine
Torn by what we've done and can't undo
I just want to hold, come on let me hold you
Like bernadette would do
I just want to hold you, won't you let me hold you
Like bernadette would do
