"Rosenband" as written by and Michael Kelley....
I found her sleeping
And bound her up with roses
Did I know I held her life in my hands
Did I know I held her life in my hands

I whispered and she woke
I spoke the rosy ribbons
Did I know she held my life in her hands

And all round us was Elysion
Elysion
Elysion

The sea has drowned the city
The skies are full of thunder
Still I know I held her life in my hands
I shivered and she spoke
The final words of summer
Still I know, she held my life in her hands

And all around us was Elysion
Elysion
Elysion
Elysion
Elysion

Elysion
Elysion

I need you to hold on, when the sky is falling
I need you to hold on, when the sky is falling
I need you to hold on, when the sky is falling
I need you to hold on, when the sky is falling

    General Commentn Greek mythology, Elysium (Greek: Ἠλύσια πεδία) was a section of the Underworld (the spelling Elysium is a Latinization of the Greek word Elysion). The Elysian fields, or sometimes Elysian plains, were the final resting place of the souls of the heroic and the virtuous . It is associated with the Christian Heaven.(en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…)

    When you know that the song, in my opinion, becomes pretty straightforward.
