She lives on a mountain,
two days march away.
“She drank from the fountain
of youth” as travelers say.”

She's bored by her man
who is infected by success.
I forged a secret plan
to end our loneliness.

I can whisper and shout
fate speaks out loud.

I am a burning man
The way that you look at me
lights up the air that we breath.

I am a burning man
The way you don't look at me
breaks up the land underneath.

I sneak into her gardens,
in the shelter of the night.
Courage has been hardened
as I spot her all in white.

Her travel bags are ready
But how could she have known?
Bliss is rising steady,
cause her plan was like my own!


I leave my cover
to confront my love at last.
But she discovers
I'm not the one who's asked.

The silence in my heart
is broken by a priest,
taking her into a convent
away from teasing beasts.
