lyrics

“URSA MAJOR”
© 2020 SUFJAN STEVENS MUSIC/ASCAP
For the love of God
In the shade of Ursa Major
For the life of me
I can’t account for human nature
For your information
I’m not one for controversy

So I ask forgiveness now
Lord, reveal yourself in mercy
Call off all emergency
And look at thing things the way I see them
For the beauty of the earth
It shows us wisdom, love and rebirth

Chorus...
I wanna love you, I wanna love you
Until the earth runs through it
I wanna love you, I wanna love you
And I’m definitely gonna do it

For the love of mercy
In the face of all this danger
For the most of all my life
I feel as if I were a stranger
And all the consequences
From the throes of our persuasion
Lord, I ask for patience now
Call off all of your invasion
There is beauty where I see it
Everywhere that I can feel it
I am on the verge of sorrow
Tell me, lord, which road to follow

Chorus...

Sufjan Stevens: drums and percussion, Tempest, Prophet 08, Prophet 6, Prophet X, vocals
Casey Foubert: bass guitar
