Six for the frightened child
On the day we die
Five for the search for meaning
In the tears we cry
Le lie le lie

Four from the shadows
Hiding just out of sight
Three for their disappearence
In the morning light
Le light le light
Two arms to hold you tight

One for the kiss
Before we say goodbye
Six for the frightened child
On the day we die
The light, the light
Tonight, tonight

    General CommentI like the play on "tearing your arms 'to/two' hold you tight" as a way to complete the counting. Is there an actual Mahila in real life or is that just invented for the song?
