Heavens Bride

She told me I was brave and bold like a knight,
That chivalry was the code I’d studied all my life;
Then she took her simple hand and placed it in mine,
She said, I’m yours if you want me, I will be your bride.

All the stars in heaven bloomed like the spring;
Every bird on every branch of every tree began to sing;
And the past was just a memory that didn’t mean anything.
Upon her pale white finger I wound on Saturn’s ring.

I’d like tell the story of our life in love;
I’d like to offer something to the stars above;
I’d like to say it’s true for I’ve released the dove
But she is still a dream
