lyrics

Fallen I am
Fallen am I
Like the snow on the ground
When the winter comes ‘round

Fallen I am
Fallen am I
Neither sign nor star
Has ever fallen so far
…has ever fallen so far…

For his love was immense
It was terrifying
And I could not exist
In the fullness of him

I thought it better to reign
And as rain I shall fall
I will wrap myself warm in my flesh
Safe at last from all that he’s blessed

And I shall soften the features
Of his face as he appears
Before his creatures
But I’ll spit on the broken
Crown of the human race

Fallen I am
Fallen am I
Like the snow on the ground
When the winter comes ‘round

Fallen I am
Fallen am I
Neither sign nor star
Has ever fallen so far

…has ever fallen so far…

But Michael, oh Michael
Oh you blond child…
You sing at his feet
Yet appear elevated by your very nature
Your back does not really bend
Nor hunchbacked do you appear
…though you kneel

But as for me
When I began to sing
The notes they choked in my throat
And the words just fell all apart
And the fire…
It just left my heart

Fallen I am
Fallen am I
Like the snow on the ground
When the winter comes ‘round

Fallen I am
Fallen am I
Neither sign nor star
Has ever fallen so far

…has ever fallen so far…


And there’s one house empty
Oh, there’s one house empty
There’s one house empty
In Jerusalem tonight
In Jerusalem tonight

Oh, there’s one house empty
There’s one house empty
Yes there’s one house empty

In Jerusalem tonight
In Jerusalem tonight
In Jerusalem good night
In Jerusalem
Turn out the light…
