Closing Time | The Eye of the Needle

The Divine Comedy, van hun album Regeneration uit 2001.

Wat is domineeszoon Hannon toch een goede liedjesschrijver! Niet enkel muzikaal, maar tekstueel. Dit is al bijna literatuur.

They say that you’ll hear Him
if you’re really listening
and pray for that feeling of grace
But that’s what I’m doing, why doesn’t He answer?
I’ve prayed ‘til I’m blue in the face

The cars in the churchyard are shiny and German
distinctly at odds with the theme of the sermon
And during communion I study the people
threading themselves through the eye of the needle

I know that it’s wrong for the faithful to seek it
but sometimes I long for a sign, anything
Something to wake up the whole congregation
and finally make up my mind

The cars in the churchyard are shiny and German
completely at odds with the theme of the sermon
And all through communion I stare at the people
squeezing themselves through the eye of the needle
