(Written By Cohen, Performed In "Night Magic")

(Everyone) The whole work holds it's breath again
The marriage ring it shines
The billionth trillionth walk begins
As another world sighs

Sights and best of wishes and
A silence you can hear
The vow that breaks the world are spoke
And the whole world sheds a tear

(Beggar) Out of the joy of your marriage feast
O brother be good to me
The way is long and the shrine is far
Where my weary feet would be
And feasting is always somewhat sad
To those outside the door
Still love is only a dream
And life itself is hardly more

(Everyone) The human company draws close
And lends an ear
The vows that break the world are spoke
As the whole world sheds a tear

The vows that break the world
And the whole world sheds a tear
