English

Alone she sleeps in the shirt of man
With my three wishes clutched in her hand.
The first that she be spared the pain that comes
From a dark and laughing rain.
When she finds love, may it always be true.
This I beg for the second wish I made too.

But wish no more, my life you can take
To have her please just one day wake.
To have her please just one day wake.

Battlestar Galactica


This is Lara's first reading on kuch sunao.

This was a song written especially for an episode of Battlestar Galactica. We occasionally pass it off as a folk song if someone asks us to sing something. We think Bear McCreary is impressive for creating a song for a sci fi show that we can pretend is folksy and earth-bound.
