6: I heard a tale about a queen

I heard this tale about a queen
whose anger rose against a cliff
she coloured crimson, shade unclean.
I heard this tale about a queen…
I think I’d cleanse it back, with green
and live with you beside it, if
I heard this tale about a queen
whose anger rose against a cliff.

5: Before the sun begins to set

Before the sun begins to set
we’ll share another cup of tea;
the kettle’s never settled yet
before the sun begins to set,
and every morning since we met
you’ve shared your joyful life with me;
before the sun begins to set
we’ll share another cup of tea.

4: Since the day doesn’t store

Since the day doesn’t store,
and the seconds can’t stay,
each moment’s no more.
Since the day doesn’t store,
when you’re seventy-four,
I’ll kiss you good day;
since the day doesn’t store.
and the seconds can’t stay.
