Toti O’Brien

In her bed
half awake
she heard a voice
it said
you’ll be happy
one day
in a place that’s named

Is it why
the girl came?
For what was predicted
that night?
Not at all
Life brought her
and the prophecy
she forgot


When she came
did she look
for happiness
Of course
Did she find it?
So she believed
once or twice

And each time
oh well
she remembered
the mysterious
and she thought
that it was for good


‘Cause indeed
she was where the oracle
had pointed
but Lord
can you please
What’s the promised land
and what’s happiness?

it keeps sliding
behind clouds
and over
the rainbow
‘cause she
doesn’t know
