And we wind and climb and fall
Like the greatest waltz of all
Float across the floor
Her sweet breath outside the door
And it’s time that I was gone
Across the silver tear

As I leave behind Neidin
In the hall where we have been
Rhododendrons in her hair
In the mountain scented air
I still feel her spirit song
Cross the silver tear
