Poseidon — Richard Thompson and Judith Owen

Thursday, 29 March 2012


 

 

Chosen by Sue Hopper, a celebrant in Devon, and played at a funeral recently. 

Thank you, Sue!

 

How can a raindrop still an angry sea
How can a harsh word heal a child
How can your silence
Fill this ancient need in me
How can I read between your lines?

(Chorus)
For I have loved you, my darling,
For a thousand years
And I will love you until the end of time
But you’re as deep as any ocean
And I’m a drowning man
Oh Poseidon, won’t you throw me a line?

So if I go to heaven
If I sleep amongst the clouds
Then will I tell you how I feel
Well, I wish I was an angel
I wish you weren’t so proud
For what I love is all that you conceal

(Chorus)
