when the stars above refuse to shine
when this love shall leave this heart of mine
when all the streams shall run blood red
and all the trees and flowers are dead

I'll go gently
lover while you leave me

when all the seas have dried up like the shore
time for you and me shall be no more
until that day or that good night
I'll rage the dying of the light

then I'll go gently
lover while you leave me

then when heaven and earth shall be reborn
the stone has rolled away the veil is torn
and all the souls begin to rise
and shine like diamonds in the sky

I'll weep gently
lover while you greet me
but I won't go gently
lover while you leave me
