The chorus of this song came to me in my sleep. Thankfully I remembered it when I woke up!
Enjoy.

lyrics

Magdalene

The wind blows secrets rarely told, never said out loud
The sky's got stars with constellations high above the ground
Sing a song she said to him underneath her coat, a song that talks about this love
And these are the words he spoke,

Magdalene, Magdalene
Take it from me
You don't know what it feels like to be free

She looked at him with eyes wide shut and started to respond
Then realized she buried courage somewhere on the run
Split in two she offered half, kindly he refused
Magdalene, you foolish thing, it’s you that has to choose

Magdalene, Magdalene
Take it from me
You don't know what it feels like to be free

The other one’s knockin’ at your door and you go home with him
It takes a mighty strong man to not commit a sin
But the world is wide and the world is tall so one day you will see
I'm standin’ here in the middle babe where everything is free

Magdalene, Magdalene
Take it from me
You don't know what it feels like to be free

No you don’t know what it feels like to be free
