Of love and fire this song
for the love of a goddess with a mortal man
A song from the heart coming warm
into the night’s echo

Love – love – love me and come and be god
Love – love, they say, madness that becomes light

Onto the highest clouds does she sit bowed
tries to open her wings but they are cut
A song begins again to tell you
She begs to see him

Love – love – love me and come and be god
Love – love, they say, madness that becomes light

Of love and fire this song same the tune
and if you learn how to sing it you become a god!
