So much farther off than time could reach
Today it would be too late
So much despair he has bled
But will he wither away
No one knows that you must keep
This Old Man wide awake
'cause the nightmares will be released

Sweeter far than life I found that love was
Sweeter far than love to die as he did (J. L. Runeberg)

The stars fell from the nightsky
As he reached his hands in the air

As the sun peeked between the trees
The Old Man burst to tears
