I'll linger here your ring upon my finger dear and sing till dawn
A song of you and me and what and why for time is all I have to keep
Between these walls and half asleep the days go by a million little
Nights and days go by and I don't mind Parades go by So many beautiful
Parades go by Leave me behind I'll sit and stare how could I venture
Anywhere and let the centuries fall where they may but never die
For I have loved and so I lost the world above beyond the moss...
