We, on our present life, Knew that the stars were right. That if you are the first to go, You'll leave a sign to let me know, Tell me so. Please, carry the Lantern lights. You crossed the sea of night, Free from the spell of fright Your cloak it is a spirit shroud. You'll wake me in my sleeping hours, Like a cloud. So, please, carry the Lantern high. Me, in my sorry plight, You waiting ev'ry night. My face it turns a deathly pale, You're talking to me, through your veil, I hear you wail. So, please carry the Lantern light. The servants sleep, The door's are barred. You hear the stopping of my heart-we never part. So, please carry the Lantern high.
