Across my back
The taste of olives and pleasures that
You taught me
And we broke bread and then we drank
Cheap white wine
Memories of happiness frozen for all time

I hear you crying in my heart
Absent friends shall live by love
Remember places of my past
Absent friends shall live by love
And the dead shall live again
Absent friends shall live by
Love...love...love...love

And i remember laughing so much we cried
You knew my every thought, there was
Nothing i could hide
We celebrated moons we marvelled at
The night sky
With flute and drum and pen we were
Grateful for our lives

I hear you crying in my heart
Absent friends shall live by love
Remember places of my past
Absent friends shall live by love
And the dead shall live again
Absent friends shall live by
Love...love...love...love

I hear you crying in my heart
Absent friends shall live by love
Remember places of my past
Absent friends shall live by love
And the dead shall live again
Absent friends shall live by
Love...love...love...love
