I Was Born

I was born in the wings 

Of an old cathedral where my parents sang

There they spoke in overtones

Lifting slow and echoing across my frame

And through it all, through it all

We never thought about the end

And through it all, through it all

We never thought about the silence

Now the drums break the dawn

Moving two by two and shaking through the nave

Cannon song, carry on

Voices rise and fall out like a mighty wave

And through it all, through it all

I never thought about the end

And through it all, through it all

We never thought about the silence
