We, in our present life

Knew that the stars were right.
That if you are the first to go
You'll leave a sign to let me know
Tell me so.
Please, carry the Lantern lights.
You crossed the sea of night

Free from the spell of fright
Your cloak it is a spirit shroud.
You'll wake me in my sleeping hours
Like a cloud.
So, please, carry the Lantern high.
Me, in my sorry plight

You waiting ev'ry night.
My face it turns a deathly pale
You're talking to me, through your veil
I hear you wail.
So, please carry the Lantern light.
The servants sleep
The door's are barred.
You hear the stopping of my heart-we never part.
So, please carry the Lantern high.
