The Rhythm of the Saints

ŠPaul Simon, released on The Rhythm of the Saints, 1990

.

If I have weaknesses

Don't let them blind me

Or camouflage all I am wary of

I could be sailing in seizures of laughter

Or crawling out from under the heel of love

Do my prayers remain unanswered

Like a beggar at your sleeve

Olodumare is smiling in heaven

Smiling in heaven I do believe

.

Reach in the darkness

A reach in the dark

Reach in the darkness

A reach in the dark

To overcome an obstacle or an enemy

To glide away from the razor or a knife

To overcome an obstacle or an enemy

To dominate the impossible in your life

.

Always a stranger when strange isn't fashionable

And fashion is rich people waving at the door

Or it's a dealer in drugs or in passion

Lies of a nature we've heard before

Do my prayers remain unanswered

Like a beggar at your sleeve

Babalu-aye spins on his crutches

Says leave if you want

If you want to leave

.

Reach in the darkness

A reach in the dark

A reach in the darkness

Reach in the dark

To overcome an obstacle or an enemy

To glide away from the razor or a knife

To overcome an obstacle or an enemy

To dominate the impossible in your life

Reach in the darkness

A reach in the dark

Reach in the darkness

A reach in the dark

To overcome an obstacle or an enemy

To dominate the impossible in your life

Reach in the darkness

A reach in the dark
