Glastonbury lyrics

Attempting to transcribe the lyrics of the new song Glastonbury! Can anyone help with the obviously wrong bits?




Take me to the mountain green
You know it but I've never been
I was packin' since the 10th of May
A few distractions along the way

Pale as snow, my flowering rose
For a flowering rose I would bend my knee
Came to find the flowering rose
The flowering rose of Glastonbury

You are... my pocketful of sunshine*
You are... the miracle I came here to find

Some things you just can't control
Sometimes you just gotta go(?)

This morning it was heaven sent
Our music was a sacrament
Two pilgrims on a mountain green
You knew it but I'd never been

Pale as snow, my flowering rose
For a flowering rose I would bend my knee
I came to find the flowering rose
The flowering rose of Glastonbury

You are... my pocketful of sunshine
You are... the miracle I came here to find

Down at the river where the pilgrims sleepin'
Under the flower of a miracle tree
Sceptred saints had the thought worth keepin'
Even in your dreams you can't be sleepin'(?)

You are... my particle of sunshine
You are... you want the double all the time(?)**
You are... my particle of sunshine
You are... the miracle I came here to find
The miracle I came here to find
Miracle I came here to find



* Not sure about the chorus - it sounds like "particle" in the video above, but I've heard another recording where it sounds more like "pocketful of sunshine" (the lyric I originally thought I heard). I can't tell which is right.

** It also sounds a bit like "You want the devil all the time"... is Bono acknowledging my vision of the perfect U2 show? Haha!
