In the dying of a broken love, there's a wonder tongue And she speaks of the magical places we've been and gone As she lifts us out of the dark with the last remaining spark Shakes us up and sets us gently down, saying Wrap your given treasure carefully Feed it on the blossom of the Cherry tree Do the dance of bees 'til you're giddy on your knees Breathe the air and never stop believing The louder you call, the further your words will fly The brighter they shine, the quicker they'll catch my eye The softer they fall, the longer our love will carry us up to the wings of the doves But the harder they hit the deeper the bruises sigh, so Wrap your given treasure carefully Feed it on the blossom of the Cherry tree Do the dance of bees 'til you're giddy on your knees Breathe the air and never stop believing Haven't you ever pulled the knife from someone's back? Rescued a desperate damsel from the railway track? Succoured the stems of wilting flowers? Held the hands of clocks for hours? Died and lived and died before you met me? Wrap your given treasure carefully Feed it on the blossom of the Cherry tree Do the dance of bees 'til you're giddy on your knees Breathe the air and never stop believing Wrap your given treasure carefully Feed it on the blossom of the Cherry tree Do the dance of bees 'til you're giddy on your knees Breathe the air and never stop believing Breathe the air and never stop believing Breathe the air and never stop believing.
