Will you dance with me|
When the tiger comes...
Stay to hear it purr;
Unbound, alive, and free?
And will you
Stay to feel the rain's caress,
To smell the scent
Of New World Clover...
To taste its honey
We have endured the wars,
The prophets, and the politicians.
All that's left
Is the rising dust and us.
When the tiger comes,
Only.. for love.
