Thelma Sings To Little Nell [Studio]

"A mother looses her first child at a young age. Lives a life torn by grief, the girl age 4 makes her Father take her to her favorite angel statue in the near graveyard where she sits enamored playing in utter joy. A terrible illness ravages the child, Thelma, and within a week is reduced to skin and bone to quickly die. Her parents having no means to buy her a grave to bury her, suffer Thelma's burial in an unmarked paupers grave. A grave that happens to be overlooked by that Angel statue???. (silence???.) The song takes place as Thelma greets her mother's soul as she passes from the world."
Peter Murphy

"Thelma is the long lost child, died young, of a mother who now dead herself, is being welcomed by Thelma to her reality. ' I was always with you, why did you grieve for me?'"
Peter Murphy

Fragments spinning in the waves
The sea is dreaming of shining caves
