The Cross Lyrics

7. The Cross (8:50)
Eli, Eli Eli Lema Sabactani!
Oh, why hast thou forsaken me?
Eli, Eli Eli Lema Sabactani!
Why love asks for so much pain?

Rough wood scorches my skin
Each step is harder
Pain, deep like a sin.

Blood over my eyes
But I can hear
Yesterday friends laughs.

My heart won't bring me up there
Breath doesn't come.
Laughs everywhere.

Pitiless sun burns my throat
No friendly faces
To calm this thirst.

Who's him, what did he do?
A fool who had a dream
A lover without sin
Law won't allow a king with no crown

John, brothers, where are ye?
Peter,
Denying me.

Love doesn't fear wounds,
Father,
But this poor body shakes...

Nails through bones
A cross is made
Pain makes us all the same
These two men
At my side
Would deserve a better fate.

I won't go
I won't leave
As he didn't leave me
I was lost
With no pride
Then one day he smiled.

Silently a woman cries
Little whispers of pain
Fading slowly at sunset
Three crosses in the rain

No, father!
Not her, no!
This is not for her eyes
Now I know,
Bring her away
This is a price well paid

Seventh hour
One single cry
I know it's over now
Donno how
So much to say
But I just ran away

Silently a woman cries
Little whispers of pain
Fading slowly at sunset
Three crosses in the rain

T'was a price well paid
The corpse seems to smile
T'was a price well paid
