On An Ocean

 ◊  Saint Juliana, pray for us

Saw the movie, Henry Poole Is Here. Very, very good movie. Many levels of symbolism. Hope to write more about it later. Here are the haunting lyrics to the song played at the climax of the movie, “On An Ocean” by Lisa Gerrard and Jeff Rona. (Hear the song at Jeff Rona’s myspace page.)

On an ocean white
Of roaring waves
I see your light
And golden face
A precious gift
Of your longing arms
Hurt me not
Just sing to me, my love
Oooo, Oooo
How come so
Soooo…
Sweetly child you sing
And all the joy you bring me
Gooooes…
Goes our loved ones home
And know I will, I will be waiting
On an ocean
Sweetly child you sing
On an ocean
On an ocean
Soooo come…
Soooo…
