Here in this place of death and doom
There is a flicker of light, as I try to bring you back to me from the dead
Just as in ancient times, soon again, we shall be bride and groom
In another life, for you, I was especially born and bred.

Being condemned to eternal life, from something that happened long ago
I have lived many lives, as I traveled through space and time
Living for the day, I once more defied the Gods, to make you rise, because I love you so
Our brief moment we were together, then you died,in this tomb you lie, where it is as silent as a mime
When you awaken, to you it will seem like yesterday, but for me the passing of time was very slow.

Finally finding your tomb, I can't wait for us to share life again
I see you sarcophagus, where you have slept for many many years
I know what I am to do is considered an awful horrific sin
Soon again, my voice you shall hear.

With the Book of the Dead in hand, soon I shall read the incantation, that will bring you back to me
In our previous life, I was high priestess, to Isis, the giver of life and fertility
So as I read from the sacred book, from the land of the dead, please hear my plea
Come back to me, once more you in my arms, I know you will never flee.

In your previous life, you held a position of power, and me a priestess, our love could never be
Only we knew of each other's feelings, because then our love would have been considered taboo
So here, in this tomb of the dead, you will rise again, after everything done and said
Bringing you once more to life, from death's unending abyss and unknown pool.

So your followers and I chant the inscriptions from the book
It's like I'm in some sort of trance, swaying side to side, repeating over and over, the words, that will soon release you from the dark veil of death
I think I see you move, I lean closer to you for a better look
Then I see you chest rise, as I know you take life's first breath.
