Rosa Lavenne - Seven Sisters

English
A A

Seven Sisters

Clothes of satin in the Spring
Under the flowers, above the green
The youthful pleasantries
Seven sisters and me
 
I sit holding a silver pot
All I need is all I got
Apple blossoms in Spring
Seven sisters to bring
 
But oh, when he will come
He spares but no one
The man clad in black
With a scythe on his back
 
A picture-perfect adolescence
Oblivious to its transience
Time pouring like tea
Seven sisters and me
 
But oh, when he will come
He spares but no one
The man clad in black
With a scythe on his back
 
No, Lord, don't take me
I wanna stay here in my blue satin
Seven sisters braiding blossoms on the green
I don't wanna know the end of them
And I don’t wanna know the death of me
 
But oh, when he will come
He spares but no one
And oh, when he will come
He spares but no one
The man clad in black
With a scythe on his back
 
Thanks!
