I was there and I saw
As they pinned his hands and feet
I was there and I saw
And I watched our Mary weep

And what do you feel when the pain
Is more than what you can see
And all that you hide at the center of soul
Is more than the sky is deep

And love is just a thought
More than it is a thing
And God has gone to sleep
When birds come out to sing

And when is death your friend
Is it just before the dawn?
When nightmares soon will end
Or when your friends are gone

It doesn’t matter all that much
And only time will tell
I know you’ve come this far my friend
I’m sure that you’ll do well
