Lyrics

Lumiere:
Across the evening sky, all the birds are leaving,
But how can they know it’s time for them to go?
Before the winter fire, I will still be dreaming;
I have no thought of time.
Sinéad:
For who knows where the time goes?
And who knows where the time goes?
Lumiere:
Sad, deserted shore, your fickle friends are leaving.
Ah, but then you they know it’s time for them to go,
But I will still be here; I have no thoughts of leaving;
I have no fear thoughts  of time.
Sinéad:
For who knows where the time goes?
And who knows where the time goes?
Lumiere:
And I am not alone while my love is near me.
I know it will be so until it’s time to go.
So come the those storms of winter and then come the those birds in spring again
They do not count the time
Sinéad:
For who knows how my love grows?
And who knows where the time goes,
Oh, oh, where the time goes?
