(Don't Fear) The Reaper


All our times have come
Here but now theyíre gone
Seasons donít fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun, or the rain (we can be like they are)
Come on baby (donít fear the reaper)
Baby take my hand (donít fear the reaper)
Weíll be able to fly (donít fear the reaper)
Baby Iím your man

La la la la la
La la la la la

Valentine is done
Here but now theyíre gone
Romeo and Juliet
Are together in eternity (Romeo and Juliet)
40,000 men and women every day (like Romeo and Juliet)
40,000 men and women every day (redefine happiness)
Another 40,000 coming every day (we can be like they are)
Come on baby (donít fear the reaper)
Baby take my hand (donít fear the reaper)
Weíll be able to fly (donít fear the reaper)
Baby Iím your man

La la la la la
La la la la la

Love of two is one
Here but now theyíre gone
Came the last night of sadness
And it was clear she couldnít go on
Then the door was open and the wind appeared
The candles blew and then disappeared
The curtains flew and then he appeared (saying donít be afraid)
Come on baby (and she had no fear)
And she ran to him (then they started to fly)
They looked backward and said goodbye (she had become like they are)
She had taken his hand (she had become like they are)
Come on baby (donít fear the reaper)
