The First And Last Word

In the bright city of myths and legends
Where so much history has been written
Where once the Phoenicians,
the Moors and the Romans came
Where a big earthquake destroyed everything
But many hands led by resilience
and dreams rebuilt again
The city from which new discoveries
have been made
And explorers conquered the world
Where people believe in fate
and in the leading hand of God
Here in the Sé de Lisboa, the cathedral
I light a candle for me and you
Like I’ve already lit many
Each as a holy beacon of light around us
Then before the altar I kneel down
And pray for a miracle
Or do I pray for destiny to unfold
May we be reunited
And be brought back together
My Lord, my angels,
please, wipe away these tears
Lift the heavy burden from my shoulders
And help me to have faith
in the divinity of true love
Help me to believe and to see
what my heart and soul know
But my mind seems to doubt
That true love will always have
the first and last word
