Macha folksongs about death (41) RE: looking for folksongs about death 21 Apr 04


Claire In Heaven

Sung by Capercaillie

I was no more than three days old
Too young to speak, too young to count my toes
I think of fields where I might run
This moral twilight I was plucked from
Up here we have no goals
You tear your hearts, you claw your souls
I wonder at this life that passed me by
But still I smile

Chorus:
Although I'm not with you down there
I sit alone up here and stare
It's me, my name is Claire
Claire in heaven
Claire in heaven

I wait for my next life patiently
I'm in no rush because of what I see
It's hard for me to understand
I gaze from poisoned sea to poisoned land
Up here we see a new tomorrow
Your world's not round, your world is narrow
For me, I just had a while
But still I smile

Although I'm not with you down there
I sit alone up here and stare
It's me, my name is Claire

(Chorus)
