The cock crows, the wind blows
The night falls, the sun drops
The light fades away
The stars show the way
Tonight’s the night, today’s the day
I will give my heart away
You’ll be a slave, they’ll say
Lose your voice and have no say
Is that a price you want to pay?
Just to give your heart away
Think young man
Wait for the rising sun
Before it’s all said and done
Under the stars it all seems fun
Till you lose you and you’ve gone too far
But I’ll say let me be
There’s no price it’s all free
There will be no me it’ll be we
When the sun rise we will sing
You will be at the ceremony and you will drink
Won’t you eat to your fill?
Won’t you come bearing gifts?
Don’t you want me to feel?
The same thing you said was real
Then I will give my heart away and wait
Like a fisherman with a hook and bait
Wait till I am a slave
Wait till I have to pay
Wait to hear what they will say
Wait to dig my own grave
But for now I will give my heart today
Maybe I’ll just have paved the way
