Chorus

Lord:
I am the God in the grain
I only fall to rise again
And though the sun sets in the sky
I will never truly die
Lady:
I am the Goddess of all time
I am the lover left behind
The moon reflects what light remains
I know He never truly dies.
.
Lord:
The season turns so swiftly, far too soon I must be gone,
And I know that it's hard for your to rise and carry on.
You know that I'll return once more when the circle rolls along,
So feast my life and dance my death. Remember me in song.

Chorus
 
  Lady:
Our home will be a hollow place when He's no longer here,
But though I cannot see His face, I still will feel him near.
You mustn't fuss about me now. I have my job to do.
I'll work here; He'll tend us there. We'll both take care of you.

Chorus

 

Both:
Though we will be in different worlds, my thoughts will be with you,
And we will laugh and love against a season fresh and new.

Lord:
Then you will give me birth once more,
Lady:
Then I will give you birth once more

Both:
And we will step together, love, to dance upon the land.

Chorus
