Courtney Jones - Cathedral

I am a cathedral
I have stood here through the years.
I have sung a thousand hymns and shed ten thousand tears

My bells used to ring
to tell the hour to those near
Now a voice's echo in my empty halls are all I hear
Days weeks decades and centuries
a museum that i wasn't meant to be

Oh I am a cathedral
I've seen cities rise and fall
I've outlasted emperors and kings
Through flood and fire i remain
a silent witness to it all
but everyone and time's forgotten me

Was once a sanctuary a protector of the weak
Built to offer solace to all those who came to me
I am a pioneer now disregarded history
But I offer all I have and will forever so it seems

Days, weeks, decades and centuries
a museum that I wasn't meant to be
Oh I am a cathedral
I've seen cities rise and fall
I've outlasted emperors and kings
Through flood and fire I remain
a silent witness to it all
but everyone in time' s forgotten me

Moss and ivy are misleading
I'm still young at heart

Days, weeks, decades and centuries
a museum that I wasn't meant to be
Oh I am a cathedral
I've seen cities rise and fall
I've outlasted emperors and kings
Through flood and fire I remain
a silent witness to it all
but everyone and time' s forgotten me

Oh I remember everything,
but everyone in time's forgotten me
Ohhhhhh.....
