This part is for my love of old
How the Rose in your heart you hold
Still, all the water in your wells
Won't make it grow

O the call of the nightingale
How I loved thee
Neath the ghostly sails
We moved like gypsies
'Neath the mist and
Beneath the gloom

O how the river flows
Under the ice & snow
The keeper of the flame,
The Rose Captain, knows my name
His perfumed breath I've breathed
For you, my dear
My love will never leave

This part is for my love of new
How the bulbs in my heart are true
They send their shoots through my fingers
Into your bones

O the call of the collared dove
How I long to be
Your one truelove
We'll move like gypsies
'Neath the stars and
Beneath the moon

O how the river flows
Under the ice & snow
The keeper of the flame
The Rose Captain knows our names
His perfumed breath we've breathed
For you, my dear
My love will never leave

O the Rose Captain knows
He knows our names
O the Rose Captain knows
He knows our names
