still important

we watched them gather
on the other side
and we saw five hundred people
all kneel down and cry

"hallelujah"

we watched you underwater
while everybody prayed
and we saw five hundred people
lift their hands and sing

"hallelujah"

and the spirit came
and the spirit touched you
and i know your name
but i won’t touch you

i saw you
beautiful and radiant
i can’t trust
what i don’t see as brilliant
i saw you
smiling, dripping, secret
i saw you
nothing different, still important

and the spirit came
and the spirit touched you
and i am pretty i sure i know your name
but i won’t touch you

god came to my room
and we talked for a while
i told God what it was like to be alone
do you know what it’s like to feel alone
of course you do

i don’t want to be alone

and the spirit came
and the spirit touched you
and i know your name
but there’s no way on this goddamn earth i’ll ever touch you
