Don’t you know that you are mine?
Has God not told you yet?
He wrapped our souls in endless vines
So love, forgive and then forget
Let’s dance you say?
You fidget, squirm
Let’s dance in love instead!
We’ll dance the tango and the waltz!
Then we’ll go ahead
And leave this place
It’s time to go
Our carriage, there awaits
The stars above
Declare our love
And in them read our fates
Oh, ma chérie!
Don’t cry near me!
I’ll wipe your tears away!
I’ll pack my dagger
Close to my heart
And we’ll be on our way.
In the morning we’ll have left
But tonight to the garden square
Your father will have seen you gone
And in the dawn will meet us there.
He’ll find us on the bench at dawn
Wrapped in a crimson sheet
We’ll be tied in love at last
Our hearts playing the same beat
This dagger here will cross our hearts
And with it will bleed our love
A love that bleeds so well and true
That there will never be enough
Oh, my darling don’t you fear!
The man in black has said,
That in the morning he’ll be here
And then we will be wed!
His kingdom will suit you, dear
He promised me last June
All your beauty and your grace
Will be as ageless as the moon
Don’t weep, my love!
I promise you!
The man in black’s our friend!
He gave his word, his honest word!
He’ll be there until the end
And I’ll be here
Right by your side!
Have you ever heard me lie?
I assure you that my words are true.
I will never say good bye.
