Slow and somber song, your melody is bittersweet
Leaving poets with losses for words, knocking strong men from their feet
Meet, meet these fragile ears and help me to sing along
Lifting out the bittersweet taste of the somber, slower song

Shade each note in on paper woven from the stars
Falling to earth from the heavens and missing where shining lights are
Fleeting is the moment here in the pace and place where we belong
Lifting out the bittersweet taste of the somber, softer song

Teardrops fall to the river and strike the starting cue
Fireflies dance amonst the mist in the field where I search for you
Deep, deep does this song's words pierce in my heart like night pierced by dawn
Lifting out the bittersweet taste of the somber, softer song

Rest your head onto the grass and see as it softly caresses your skin
Feel the tip of each stanza, know not where one ends nor where one begins
Steep, steep is the fall into sorrow as days grow short and nights grow long
Lifting out the bittersweet taste of the somber, softer song
