  • I saw you from the cathedral
    You were watching me
    And I saw from the cathedral
    What I should be

    So take my lies
    And take my time
    'Cause all the others want to take my life

    And I watch you with an intent, basic
    It's the same for you
    You hold your hand
    And it's all fine - laced and
    What would you make me do?

    So take my lies
    And take my time
    'Cause all the others want to take my life

    Serious for the winter time
    To wrench my soul
    whole cotton, whole cotton ears
    But I know there must be
    There must be, yes, I know there must be a place to go

    You saw me from the cathedral
    Well I'm an ancient heart
    Yes, you saw me from the cathedral
    Well here we are just falling apart

    You catch me
    I am tired
    I want all that you are

    I saw you from the cathedral
    You were leaving me
    And I saw from the cathedral
    You could not see to see

    So take my lies
    And take my time
    'Cause all the others want to take my life Writer/s: TANITA TIKARAM
