Mary, I come to you in my distress,
I’m craving for some sweetness
I’m standing under a loaded fig tree
waiting for a ripe fig to fall on me

Life has been less than easy
it often has been very cheesy
but actually why should I complain
I’m not the only creature in pain

I’m lighting for you a little candle
while I’m hiding under your mantle
it’s such a great feeling of safety
nobody able to mock or hate me

You keep inviting me to find refuge
your immaculate heart is a deluge
of love, warmth, motherly blessing
you want to stop all my stressing

Never was a human heart so broken
as Yours, oh Mary, I take it as a token
to offer you my pains and sorrows
you, my hope for better tomorrows

I will remember you and your Son
the life He gave me is not done
I’ll follow more and more His Path
even if it rouses the devil’s wrath
