I'll Be There

This song is by David Knopfler and appears on the album Behind the Lines (1985).

It's slipping from her shoulders like an answer to a prayer
Waiting for her moment, she's gorgeous, she's unaware
Knowing she's been here before, but can't remember when
Breathlessly she's stepping out again.

A candle in the Sacré-Cœur burns high upon the hill
Swearing to remember a kiss and a prayer, a kiss and a thrill
A six blade star, a private scar, a dancer stands quite still
I lit one under Jesus - putting four francs in his till

Looking at me across this room
Maybe thinking I don't care
But turn around in the darkness
I'll be there, I'll be there, I'll be there.

A black cloak and a sepulcher - high upon the hill
And yeah you swear you remember her - the Madonnas stand so still
A six blade star, a private scar, the wind which blows so chill
Has the flame which shone for Jesus dancing to your will

Looking at me across this room
Maybe thinking I don't care
But turn around in the darkness
I'll be there, I'll be there, ich bin da.
