lovers always run before the clock
the night plays the runaway
light through a yonder window breaks
the river overflows its tired banks

lovers always run before the clock

how cold is the blade in her hand
how empty is the cup by his side
all the heat of her blood releasing
can't warm her baby's still heart

lovers always run before the clock

now is the sun on the high-most hill
the mask of night across their faces
the streets are red with the rising light
and sorrow spills over the waking land

lovers always run before the clock

you will lie on the wings of night
whiter than snow on a raven's back
your love will shine in the star's of the sky
and all the world will worship the night

lovers always run before the clock
