Secret Soul
from Jane Eyre
 
 

Not many of these were changed.  Only the necessary ones.  They do overlap some, but not so much that it makes it as hard to read as others.  Here ends the notes for this song.


 
 

Lucy

What can I do now, my precious Lord?
His dark love would be my best reward:
I know I should not dare to go
Deeper in his madness,
But it's like a field I must run through . . .
No one's words will make me love him less;
How long must this last?  I dare not guess . . .
The secret voice that speaks to me
Tells me he's in danger,
Looking to the dust for tenderness . . .
Deep in my secret soul
I stand alone;
The purpose of why I'm here
Is still unknown . . .
In the darkness of his day
He's nearly blind,
But I keep looking for his goodness
Afraid of what I'll find . . .
My heart moves through his unquiet sea;
I pray a wave will come and carry me
Closer to his troubled tide,
Waters of his fury . . .
But how can I swim this great divide?
Deep in my secret soul,
 

Chauvelin

My secret soul . . .
 

Lucy

I cry his tears;
 

Chauvelin

Cries out loud . . .
 

Lucy

I weather his angry voice,
 

Chauvelin

This angry voice . . .
 

Lucy

I feel his fears . . .
 

Chauvelin

Cries out . . .


Both

His/Her life has infected every wound
And every pore . . .
I feel his/her mystery surround me,
But how long will it be till hes/shes found me . . .
 

Lucy

Deep in his secret soul,
 

Chauvelin

Deep in my secret soul,
 

Lucy

His heart is cursed . . .
 

Chauvelin

My heart is cursed . . .
 

Lucy

I summon my deepest will
To still his thirst . . .
 

Chauvelin

And I hope that somehow Ill
 

Lucy

I will
 

Both

Find the strength to go
Deep within his/my secret soul!
