Bring on the night that caresses the earth
Encourage the stillness and stay far from mirth.
Count all the stars as they move out to sea
And know I will love you for eternity.
How can I hide you from Heaven’s embrace?
Where shall I take you to save you from Grace?
How can I make time forget his designs
And leave us together until he resigns?
With millions of souls marching down to the sea
Why does he needlessly take you from me?
I know you are sick and your pain is great
Leaving you tired of all this debate.
But you must believe it is not time to flee
Or they will arrive for you under our gate
And take you from me. They are mad don’t you see?
A bride of the light you will never be
And Death will not steal you away not from me.
