lyrics

I don't need no master plan, to get me through
Don't need no mantra man, or your voodoo
Just one moment of enlightenment and I'm done
Watch me run.

I don't need no St Michael, to fight my way
Don't need Monsieur Jacques Brel to sing me:
“Ne me quitte pas”, for when I go
I'll go a long, long way.

Here I am almost every part of me
Every cell, every breath, every pore of me
Comin' alive like a galaxy
Tripping away on a mouth full of stars and a breath from beyond
And all my sorrows fall
My sorrows fall

Almost here I almost am here I am almost...

So take that promise from its grave
And put it in that sacred, secret space
To find again one lost and lonely night
Where you don't know your left from right

So shall it be when the fear is gone
So shall you say to Jacques:
“Mais non, je ne regrette de rien”
So shall you make your prayer to the Gods:
Give me grace, give me power for this race
That I don't need to run

But I don't need no
no, no, no, love me do
And you can't put me under the gun
Oh, and shoot this Fool
Wake me up, when this nightmare's over.

Almost here I almost am here I am
