​Catherine

This song is by Simon Joyner and appears on the album Heaven's Gate (1995).

Catherine
Beautiful mother of inseparable brothers
Return from the ocean bring us seaweed for flowers
There's no trespassing where there are no borders

Catherine
Only child and lonely orphan
Restless mother of restless children
Daughter of the carpenter and the good mother, Mrs. Mims
And haunted by the cancer that crept in a took them

Catherine
Breaking bread in the market and filling your pockets
With crumbs for the birds who returned for spring
While your children disperse with your words on their wings

Catherine
Holy vision of inseparable children
Return from across the great ocean of loss
Leave sorrow on the banks throw your tears to the sharks
We'll be there to receive you when you come back to us

We're the only children of the lonely orphan
Catherine
