Romeo and Juliet

words: Anne Hills; music: Peter Erskine

From Anne’s album Points of View

As the wings of night unfold
And its darkest feathers spread
None can bargain with the sun
Or escape the deepest bed

Dark needs light, its brighter twin,
One without the other lost
Formed together, ring and pin
Life the purchase, death the cost

Time, so time will bring us home
Lift us, troubled souls and true
Carry forth these broken things
Capulet and Montague
