oh, my love is a gentle one
she holds me close when the morning comes
her eyes are soft when the day is done
her heart beats steady like a drum

oh my love he anchors me
he keeps me firm in face of destiny
his steps are certain, his shield is strong
his heart beats steady like a song

when the peace returns to us
and when the people sing
his lionheart will beat near mine
frost will melt back into spring

oh, my love is a tender one
her quiet words pierce the darkest nights
in her eyes, i can see the sun
my ghosts are fleeing from her light

oh, my love has a lionheart
he promised we will never be apart
he pressed his luck into my palms
the hurricane inside me calms

when the world returns to us
and when the skylark soars
her love for me will keep me warm
for there’s no one else that i adore

and when the broken sky is healed
when the war is done
his lion heart, my skylark wings
we’ll walk together into spring
