Ancient love come back to us


Ancient loves come back to us
Your youth cry come back to us
When we remember the years you where with us
When we remember the time we feel your deep and warm feelings in our mist
When we remember the season when you ancient love was loved by all
When we remember the days when people really meant the word I love you
When we remember the period lovers die for your sake
When we remember all this, we say ancient loves come back to us

Ancient loves come back to us
Your youth cry come back to us
Come back to us because when we look at our days and time we discover you no longer exist
Ancient love you no longer exist in the live of our people most especially our youth
You have been despised, stunned, imprisoned and vanished from our hearth
All we can here is your echo like that of a rushing might wind
We no longer see you in our mist

Ancient loves come back to us
Your youth cry
Don’t allow the heart of your youth to be lost to lust
Because since your departure many of the youth have been devoted to lust
Your youth no longer love one another all they desire is lust for one another
Lust as taken away your pride, she as taken away your joy from the heart of the youth
She as corrupt your youth, and despised your future
Please ancient loves come back to us

Come back to us ancient love come back to us
The youth says come back to us
You have been existing even before we where made
You’ve showed us your love because you first loved us
Don’t allow the heart of your youth to be given totally to lust
Don’t watch your beloved youth dine with lust
Ancient loves come back to us and help us see that the beginning of lust is the end of all

Ancient loves come back to us
We beseech you come back to us
We your beloved youth await your coming ancient love
Come back to us.
