Lyrics

Lasting Lover's Spell

A liar and a thief
Take pleasure in my grief
Thoughts in my head
Tell me we were dead

Laughter in my pain
Stinging what remains
With everything I feel
Can't know what is real

There's a bell
for a lasting lover's spell
There's a burn
for a lasting lover's turn
Is there a place
for a lasting lover's face
Is there time

Steaming in the sun
Streaking through the trees
Looking down her gun
She's got me on my knee

Looking to the light
Wanting to take flight
Soaring through the air
Forgetting that I care

Chorus - For a last chime

The world always spins
We take it on the chin
Live it day by day
The way that life can play

So get behind your plow
Live it in the now
Savor your delights
Ride them through the night

Chorus - for a last chime
