Oh, Love! 02:39
He is strong as sunlight. In our home, he has dappled all our walls And I sleep as he stirs. Oh, love! You are sweet as any rain, I will plant you a garden. My love, I am young as any dawn. I will give you a baby. Come love, let us walk out in the dew. There is life in the meadow. The cherry tree where the creek runs in the Spring Is blooming and white. Oh love! You are strong as any tree, I will plant you an orchard. My love, I am pure as any spring, I will give you a baby. Oh child, we were wild when we fell in love! And though the years have gone by you're still all that I can think of!

Oh, the lord he has his lady, And the cob, the gentle pen. Toms with queens all marry, And the rooster loves the hen. At night they lie together And hold each other tight. They sleep nor dream nor quarrel For they've the heart's delight. But me, I have no body, Nor shall till the day I die. I lie alone in my empty bed And all night long I sigh. Oh, Jack he wedded Jenny, And the buck and the doe are one. The drake and duck fly tandem, While the fox and vixen run. At night they lie together And love each other right. They sleep nor dream nor quarrel For they've their hearts' delight. But me, I have no body, Nor shall till the day I die. I lie alone in my empty bed And all night long I sigh.

Lying in bed and the sun is rising, But you swear that it's the moon above. Yes, you swear that it is sick with love. Lying with you and a lark is calling, But you claim it as a nightingale, While you say that I am soft and fair. We can't stop the sun - it turns for everyone. Still, I will lay with you until our days are through. Strange how we know though we're young we are dying. Well I will love you for the years in you. I will love you for your future too. Inside this bed we can find our salvation- With each kiss upon the shoulder, With each heartbeat of the other. And in this way we'll never die- Ever you, and ever I- We will find a light within us And it will rise.
