Holy Mother

Performed by Eric Clapton and Luciano Pavarotti. Many thanks to Bernadette C.

Eric Clapton and Stephen Bishop

Holy Mother, where are you?
Tonight I feel broken in two.... Read More
I've seen the stars fall from the sky.
Holy mother, can't keep from crying.

Oh I need your help this time,
Get me through this lonely night.
Tell me please which way to turn
To find myself again.

Holy mother, hear my prayer,
Somehow I know you're still there.
Send me please some peace of mind;
Take away this pain.

I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait any longer.
I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait for you.

Holy mother, hear my cry,
I've cursed your name a thousand times.
I've felt the anger running through my soul;
Holy Mother can't keep control

Oh I feel the end has come,
No longer my legs will run.
You know I would rather be
In your arms tonight.

When my hands no longer play,
My voice is still, I fade away.
Holy mother, then I'll be
Lying in, safe within your arms.

Mahalo Melissa for sharing lyrics.

Wow! All I can say is completely wow! Thank you so much for this! I have goosebumps! I'm going to have to put a link on my blog sending people your way to see this, Esther. Who would have ever guessed that Eric Clapton and Luciano Pavarotti could sound so great together-must be the intervention of the Holy Mother!

Thanks Anne. It was beyond belief listening to our Holy Father proclaim him Saint Damien.
