Softly, Softly

Softly, softly, As the World falls down

Softly softly, Wipe away your frown

Softly softly, From their ivory towers

Softly, softly, Watch your final hours

 

Softly, softly, Do the angels tread

Softly, softly, All around your bed

Softly, softly, On a World in pain

Softly, softly, Falls the acid rain

 

With sweet illusion, the circus comes to town

As, yet undaunted , you don your wedding gown

Softly, softly, as we fade away

Softly, softly, beg for one more day

 

Softly, softly, As the World falls down

Softly, softly, Lay your burden down

Softly, softly, Like a long-lost friend

Softly, softly, Do we greet the end
