St Alban: Losing our heads

He came seeking sanctuary
I don’t know why I agreed
I guess I lost my head…

I gave him my cloak
seems crazy now I say it out loud
I guess I lost my head…

I stalled the Romans
never a wise thing to do
I guess I lost my head…

They insisted I renounce my new-found faith
I refused, quite insistently actually
I guess I lost my head…

The guard refused to execute me
a flood of hope, too good to be true?
I guess I lost my head…

A second stepped forward
he looked less amenable
I guess I really did lose my head…
