Suddenly, all your history's ablaze
Try to breath as the world desintegrates
Just like autumn leaves we're in for change
Holding tenderly to what remains
And all your memories are as precious as gold
And all the honey and the fire which you stole
Have you running through all your red cheek days
Shaking loose these songs from their sacred hiding space

Hold your heart courageously as we walk into this dark place
Stand, stare fast, erect and see that love is the province of the brave

Push under the ?(whizing lights) of buzzing stars
Let this burning brightly illumintate where we are
Build this hallow that lovers voices occupy
Let it follow
That we let it free, let it fly
Breaking open the walls of this cage
Intoxicated, oh so amazed
Much like falcons tumbling from our hearts that blaze
Oh come join, ?(arms engaged)

Hold these hearts courageously as we walk into this dark place
Stand, stare fast beside me and see that love is the province of the brave
