She was a tempest, her beauty a storm
Oh, her eyes they were filled with the sun
She would dance while I played her my songs
The earth stood while she danced alone

He was a tempest, his craving a storm
He lusted her body from deep in the grove
Enraptured or captured, betrayed or betrothed
She would be his, she’d be his alone

So she ran, oh she ran from the satyr’s chase
She ran for her love and her life
She tred on a snake
Venom replaced both the beat of her heart and the song in mine
The beat of her heart and the song in mine

The music was mourning a requiem cry
I wept with my songs for the love of my life
It broke all the hearts of the gods in the skies
I played my guitar and the earth opened wide

How I played, oh I played in the underworld
Oh, I played for my love and her life
Oh, I pled with the gods
Give her back
Give a beat to her heart and a song to mine
The beat of her heart and the song in mine

Hades responded, a glint in his eye
I grant you your plea, you may leave with your wife
With one small request I suggest you obey
You mustn’t look back as you walk away

So we ran, oh, we ran to the dawning light
Oh we ran for our love and our lives
Once again I would hear the sweet sound
of the beat of her heart and the song in mine
The beat of her heart and the song in mine

My mind was a tempest, my doubt was a storm
I turned back to see she really had come
Just as our eyes met, she faded from sight
That’s when I knew I would never find
the beat of her heart or the song in mine
