Lyrics

Marilyn, I can hear you laughing
Underneath the jasmine tree
I close my eyes and all I see is you
Singing like a jailbird, you broke free
Of this aching world
Now what are all the rest of us to do

Do you see your daughter dancing
Making her way up the mountain
Burying her shame beneath the bluff
Daisies on their pulpits preaching
Fear is not of you and me and
Love by any other name is love

Did you meet the lions at the gates of
paradise, or were they open wide
I can’t see what waits for us,
Beyond the great divide
But if I can’t reach your heaven
I’ll wait for you in mine

Did you meet the lions at the gates of
paradise, or were they open wide
I can’t see what waits for us,
Beyond the great divide
But if I can’t reach your heaven
I’ll wait for you in mine

Marilyn, I can hear you laughing
Underneath the jasmine tree
I close my eyes and all I see is you
