Emperor Gum - Pyramus

from by Various Artists



From meeting friendship new
Till passion’s fire we grew
But your presence’s gone amiss
Now you’re rent away by our kin’s rift

True love aloud is drowned
So whisper trackless sound
Trade sorrow, joy with me
Let’s talk of what can never be

We could steal away, Thisbe
We could leave tonight, Thisbe
Meet at Ninus’ tomb, Thisbe

This crumbling cement screen
Is all there is between
The dreams we share, Thisbe
In Babylon’s walls we’re never free

Let’s run away
We’ll run away

Under moon, white mulberry
Stained crimson by the blood
I thought was all to separate us
Till nature’s fangs tore our hopes apart

I promised you we’d always be together
One more moment’s pain and then forever
I fall on this sword to reach your arms
