C Dm F C Lavender and gold they glow, hiding in the shade,
C Dm G Tip them up and drink the sweetest juice God ever made.
C Dm F G Share them for the memories and for the luck they bring:
C Dm F G C Flahmen lurk where lovers go, rising with the spring.
C Dm F C Lavender and gold the sky, scarlet sunset threads,
C Dm C Half the world is dying when the flahmen all are dead.
C F C Soon will fall the other half; we work while we may,
C Dm F G C Building the mach ineries to take ours elves a way.
C Dm F C Lavender and gold the light that nearly leaves me blind:
C Dm C Hear the Presence call to me to leave this life beh ind!
C F C Woven joy and sorrow as I sort out last aff airs
C Dm F G C And my smile greets my daughter's heavy tread up on the stairs.
C Dm F C Lavender and gold the sun, brighter every day,
C Dm C My world and I are dying but my people are a way.
C F C In joy we die together, our faces toward the light:
C Dm F G C An aging world and woman who are staying home to night.
