Before day break there were none
And as it broke there was one
The moon, the sun, it goes on'n'on

The winter battle was won
The summer children were born
And so the story goes on'n'on

Come woman if your life beats
Those we buried with the house keys
Smoke and feather where the fields are green
From here to eternity

Come woman in your own time
Far far far from the virgin vine
Rising up from the dead leaves
Come back to me

Oh, sing your favorite song
Left to tears and dreams
It goes and then on

A vessel in the bloodline
The thirteenth zodiac sign
A stitch in time it goes on'n'on

Someday the grapes will be wine
And someday you will be mine
And so the story goes on'n'on

Come woman if your life beats
Those we buried with the house keys
Smoke and feather where the fields are green
From here to eternity

Come woman in your own time
Far far far from the virgin vine
Rising up from the dead leaves
Come back to me

Oh, sing your favorite song
Left to tears and dreams
It goes and then on

Oh, sing your favorite song
Left to tears and dreams
It goes and then on

That which was put in the ground
Will someday come back around
From dust to dust it goes on'n'on

Before daybreak there were none
And as it broke there was one
And still the story goes on'n'on

    Longing lust love as the time ticks on and someday that love will come and it will end but it will be real and there will be more. To the lives of the lovers whom untied create life. The line about wine and being someday mine makes me think he is patiently waiting for her to come into his life. This song is awesome. Theres so much to write but the little I did covers a spectrum and others have done so too so eventually you will have your own definition of this song :) ich liebe mein engel bis zum ende durch ziet und alles.

    He's talking about his love from before time was time. When before day break there were none. Talking about the sun, the moon and things in the universe go on even without us. We went from a cold lifeless winter to the warm summers where all life is awake. Come woman if your life beats, the life we buried with the old house keys - talking about an old story, old love with many histories. Come in your own time (if you're ready to be that woman now, come be with me), far from the virgin vine - no longer young or naive, a grown woman with wisdom. Rising up from the dead leaves, come back to me. Its a beautiful story of trying to woo a long lost lover back to your reality. I love this song.
