lyrics

I don't understand the whispered prayers that land at my feet
"Oh blessed one, the mother of God's son who intercedes"
You dress me all in blue as if somehow that hue claims my innocence
And how you paint my face, serene and full of grace to show no discontent

I never asked to be holy
To be raised above the lowly
I was just a child, just a child

I held him in my arms, protected him from harm though I always knew
He was never mine, he belonged to time and some kind of truth
What do you think I know, what wisdom can I show your misery
If I were good and pure I was as unsure with my own disbelief

I never asked to be his mother
To raise this child like no other
I was a child too, just a child

You glorify his names, and sanctify his claim to a holy crown
Say death did not win, he triumphed over sin, let the trumpets sound
If he escaped the grave and somehow he was saved and set free
Walks again on this earth, a miraculous rebirth, he never came back to me

I never asked to watch him die
I felt the nails, when the sword pierced his side
He was my child, he was my child
