Lightning ripped and clothes were torn
cast down onto a glistening sand below
As the shouts and the calls from the village that spurned them
now burned them at their moonlit backs
A gentle touch on each others face
that was the only truth that either would obey
A smiling nod and a tear was felt
as they embrace for one last time this day
The sound of baying crowds barking closer as torchlight crossed the beach
no more would words curse them, forever more out of reach

And they crashed through midnight waves and they basked in the full moon's rays
Hand in hand over lilting swells, far from an angry shore

And they sang « we don't give a damn, about your gods or your rules,
no man or god will ever know, what we feel to be true »
They say « the love we have will see us burn in hell.
But hell is our hearts apart so we strike out through the swell »

She sang « My love for love will never fade away.
It will burn as the sun in the heart of the day »

She replied « A stor, you have my heart.
No more will they beat us or keep us apart.
The only words I'll listen to is the singing of your heart.
Run with me tonight and we'll leave this all behind »

And the stars sing sweetly for the lovers pounding hearts
as they closed their eyes and sank beneath the pitching dark
And in the fading lights they kissed into the depths they swayed
their bones in peace would lie together to the end of days

And they sang « we don't give a damn, about your gods or your rules,
no man or god will ever know, what we feel to be true »
They say « the love we have will see us burn in hell.
But hell is our hearts apart so we strike out through the swell »

She sang « My love for love will never fade away.
It will burn as the sun in the heart of the day »

She replied « A stor, you have my heart.
No more will they beat us or keep us apart.
The only words I'll listen to is the singing of your heart.
Run with me tonight and we'll leave this all behind »

And they sang « we don't give a damn, about your gods or your rules,
no man or god will ever know, what we feel to be true »
They say « the love we have will see us burn in hell.
But hell is our hearts apart so we strike out through the swell »
