At night when my love is sleeping
We meet in a dark strange dream
we're going dancing in the pasture
so Jesus cries, do not cry for me

All your dreams will melt away
all the butterflies will burn and fade
but love and pain will still reach you
deep inside your grave

My love don't go crucify him
Duty, butterflies upon cherry trees

Across the hills the belltower rang
All the sparrows danced and sang
A desperate thirst befell us then
And the clouds filled our cups with rain

In the night we swam in grief
In the daylight we cried for relief
In the shade of eucalyptus trees
We breathed their silvery breeze.
