Jacob, Jacob, donít torch the way, Jacob.
Donít burn the moonlight.
Leave it rest on the Earth,
Let it refract off the dew-drowned leaves.
Jacob, Jacob, donít kill the moonlight, Jacob.
Donít paint-wash the forest,
Not with the colour of the stars and of the sun,
Allow the night its rise and let her see out her silver-clouded eyes.
Jacob, Jacob, donít waste the nightís beauty, Jacob.
Donít stop running though the trees,
Make the ferns sway as you run past,
Let the forest echo your hard breathing and your passion.
Jacob, Jacob, donít ever stop, Jacob.
Screech and call for me,
Cry and laugh for me,
Run after me,
Jacob, Jacob, whisper sweet nothings and fantasies in my burning ears, Jacob.
Never stall me,
Never catch me,
Not until the dawn breaks,
And the dew-drops reflect rainbow flecks in our eyes.
Please Jacob, please donít ever stop.
Let us grow old like this,
The way they used to,
When societal values were mere guidelines,
And young love danced lives and loves away.
