The sun will set behind her
When the twilight comes
The magic one, will gaze on you

Fear and doubt no longer harbour lies
Love not grow old where we reside

Years go by, wonder what you did
Yet in a minute you can change your life
All depends on your state of mind
One thing to be sure of is we live and die
