Come and rest your bones You look awful tired Fall soft upon the thought Mystery is born
Alive, alive, alive, alive Alive, alive, alive, alive-o Alive-o And a good day is nothing that we thought Finding out brings nothing that we sought Oh please don’t stand a mood apart You don’t need to break your heart
One day will teach us all a year will never know
Alive, alive, alive, alive Alive, alive, alive, alive-o Alive-o
