The smile of (1)________ arrived early May
She carried a gift from her home
The night (2)________ a tear to tell her of fear
And of sorrow and pain
She'll never outgrow

You'll find yourself swimming in a lake of fire
As a child, I (5)______________ I could (6)________ without pain
Without sorrow
As a man I've found it's all caught up with me
I'm asleep yet I'm so afraid

She's taken you to your home
It can only take place
When the struggle between
Our children has ended
Now the Miracle and the sleeper know
That the third is love
Love is the Dance of Eternity
