I May Never Understand

Bees buzzin’ in the bergamot, wind in the trees

Hummingbird hummin’ alleluia, I fall down on my knees,

On my dusty knees, I pray with dirty hands to a Mystery

I may never understand

Cricket’s singin’ the stars out now they’re shinin’ in the sky

Moon risin’ on the melody of the cricket’s lullaby

And this fiddler plays with no hands

It’s a mystery, I may never understand

I may never understand, I may never understand

Now the red-wing blackbird tells me the morning’s come

I close my eyes a little longer, hear the woodpecker playing the drum

Sayin’ “Mornin’s come, and day’s at hand!”

And it’s a mystery, I may never understand

So, I’m sittin’ here sippin’ on coffee, wonderin’ how things will end

Friends turn into lovers, and a lover becomes a friend

And, oh, the heart is an unknown land

It’s a mystery, I may never understand

I may never understand, I may never understand
