secrets

clever little angel disappearing by and by
with that chain circling her throat
i wonder how she flies
never could get her story straight
she’s not forgetting
just looking the other way
sworn never to tell the secrets
it’s easy to see she’s not even trying
now the church couldn’t help
she was damned the day she condemned herself
startled by the witch’s own confession
she could not hear the blessing calling
it was lost in the blowing wind
go now
weeping creature
remembering the love and all
the secrets
that will be deep indeed
once I’m lowered in the grave
dying for her sins
so the angel will be saved
