You brought me to trust you brought me to tears 
In one tender touch the pain disappears 
I have been to the sword seen it come seen it die 
As we enter the dark I beseech you to try 
In prophecy all good things must end 
So take care my love my friend 
Keep it precious 
Keep it precious

This yielding is fine this promise rare 
One day at a time we've agreed to dare 
Holding you tight with wide open arms 
I'm letting you go no stranger to harm 
Go on ride your way do not break or bend 
Just take care my love my friend 
Keep it precious 
Keep it precious

And the wonder let the wonder never cease 
And the madness of the pleasure and ecstasy 
Danger believing me 
Wounding and healing me please 
Keep it precious

I believe in your eyes I believe in your fate 
I believe we can fly on the wings we create 
A voice from behind calls up anger and fear 
We can silence that scream it's simple and clear 
Nothing must die only if failed to mend 
So take care my love my friend 
Keep it precious
