They cast our bodies into a hole
and from the hole a tree will grow you'll see,
and from its branches leaves will grow
just to let the people know we're here below...

and i realise by your side,
that i love it here
and by and by,
they can't destroy what i feel for you...

Blossoms break out in the summertime
each petal that drops serves to remind them all we're here,
and from our hands fruit will grow
to be eaten by kids who will never know our names,my love...

and i realise by your side,
that i love it here
and by and by,
they can't destroy what i feel for you...

In wintertime our leaves will fall
our bed covered in a silent shawl of snow..
and i realise by your side,
that i love it here
and by and by,
they can't destroy what i feel for you...

Tá sé níos laidre (he is stronger)
Tá sí nios laidre (she is stronger).
