Mystery of Love

Album: Call Me By Your Name (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) (2017)
  • Oh, to see without my eyes
    The first time that you kissed me
    Boundless by the time I cried
    I built your walls around me
    White noise, what an awful sound
    Fumbling by Rogue River
    Feel my feet above the ground
    Hand of God, deliver me

    Oh, oh woe-oh-woah is me
    The first time that you touched me
    Oh, will wonders ever cease?
    Blessed be the mystery of love

    Lord, I no longer believe
    Drowned in living waters
    Cursed by the love that I received
    From my brother's daughter
    Like Hephaestion, who died
    Alexander's lover
    Now my riverbed has dried
    Shall I find no other?

    Oh, oh woe-oh-woah is me
    I'm running like a plover
    Now I'm prone to misery
    The birthmark on your shoulder reminds me

    How much sorrow can I take?
    Blackbird on my shoulder
    And what difference does it make
    When this love is over?
    Shall I sleep within your bed
    River of unhappiness
    Hold your hands upon my head
    'Til I breathe my last breath

    Oh, oh woe-oh-woah is me
    The last time that you touched me
    Oh, will wonders ever cease?
    Blessed be the mystery of love Writer/s: Sufjan Stevens
