"On 'n' On" as written by and Morgan Phalen Xavier De Rosnay....
Before day break there were none
And as it broke there was one
The moon, the sun, it goes on'n'on

The winter better was warm
The summer children were born
And so the story goes on'n'on

Come women if your life beats
Those we buried with the house keys
Smoke and feather where the fields are
Green from here to eternity

Come woman on your own time
Far, far, far from the virgin vine
Rising out from the dead leaves
Come back to me

Oh sing your favorite song
Left to tears
Dreams it goes and then on

A vessel in the bloodline
The 13th zodiac sign
A stitch in time it goes on'n'on

Someday the grapes will be wine
And someday you will be mine
And so the story goes on'n'on

Come women if your life beats
Those we buried with the house keys
Smoke and feather where the fields are
Green from here to eternity

Come woman on your own time
Far, far, far from the virgin vine
Rising out from the dead leaves
Come back to me

Oh sing your favorite song
Left to tears
Dreams it goes and then on

Oh sing your favorite song
Left to tears
Dreams it goes and then on

That which was put in the ground
Will someday come back around
From dust to dust it goes on'n'on

Before daybreak there were none
And as it broke there was one
And still the story goes on'n'on

    General CommentI think the song is about birth, aging, and maturing as well as about a lost love. There are many metaphors relating plants and seasons to life and aging. "Someday the grapes will be wine" is very clear, in my opinion to refer to aging. They also use the grape reference again with, "Come on woman in your own time,Far, far, far from the virgin vine," suggesting that maybe the woman needed some time to get herself together, to structure her life or get her head straight.

    It's obvious the singer wants this girl, but is waiting for her to be ready. But as they say, the story goes on and on.... [life keeps on]
