lyrics

well the brook that whispers quietly is the same that tells no lies
but our secret's safe within these trees
for few are the passers by

and the man all dressed in white
will give us back our honor
'cause he swears on his honor
that he's not from our time

but we gotta chase him quickly
over roots and down the mossy path
and out into the clearing
or he'll just take, well he'll just take it back

for five nights in a row
our hearts continue to grow
and then lay down like a child
the nights of the extraordinary moon
the next one waxing cannot come too soon

well the fireflies are blinking
like many tired eyes
as we lay down breathless panting
and look out towards the skies

and as we exchange our glances
all superstition fades
the skies are all ablaze
and we're welcoming the change

but we've gotta do it quickly
we gotta dream our dreams
our bodies growing sickly
we've got to find a way to ease the pain

for five nights in a row
our hearts continued to grow
and then suddenly caught fire
like a meteor shower blazing in the sky
the next one burning opens up our eyes
