All our times have come
Here but now they’re gone
Seasons don’t fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain
We can be like they are

Come on baby
Don’t fear the reaper Baby take my hand
Don’t fear the reaper We’ll be able to fly
Don’t fear the reaper Baby I’m your man

Laaaa la laaa la la la
Laaaa la laaa la la la

Valentine is done
Here but now they’re gone
Romeo and Juliet
Are together in eternity Romeo and Juliet
Forty thousand men and women everyday Like Romeo and Juliet
Forty thousand men and women everyday Redefine happiness
Another forty thousand coming everyday We can be like they are

Come on baby
Don’t fear the reaper Baby take my hand
Don’t fear the reaper We’ll be able to fly
Don’t fear the reaper Baby I’m your man

Laaaa la laaa la la la
Laaaa la laaa la la la

Love of two is one
Here but now they’re gone
Came the last night of sadness
Clear she couldn’t go on
Door was open and the wind appeared
The candles blew then disappeared
The curtains flew then he appeared
Saying don’t be afraid

Come on baby
And she had no fear
And she ran to him
Then she started to fly
They looked backward and said goodbye
She had become like they are
She had taken his hand
She had become like they are
Come on baby

Don’t fear the reaper
Don’t fear the reaper
Don’t fear the reaper

Laaaa la laaa la la la
Laaaa la laaa la la la

    General CommentI love this song,
    I heard from the six feet under cd volume 2,
    I can't believe no one replied?
    I think this song is about not fearing the reaper,
    Death
    Taking his hand and becoming like he is,
    Or about fearing love,
    because the romeo juliet thing.
