Some other versions of "Saint"

Lyrics
She always knows when people need stroking
And is attracted to desolates and divorces
I dreamed she cared for my dying grandfather
Lying naked face down on his bed
She exists on total presence
And knows how to get through to the rest of us
She has entered of me thousandfold often
And done done not at my most awkward

She reaches out to orphans and refugees
Embraces them with her warm blankets
Her favorite child to
Will rent a hospital for eternity
She offers empathy to victims
She attends funerals of strangers
Her strongest levity is healing children with leprosy

This appeals to, I'm here to defend her
And on the bus, do
Do do do
