Saša Milivojev - NEW OATH

(I swear) by the Sun and the light
And the Moon in its wake
And the Day that brought it in sight
And concealed when it was by the Night
I shall give you to nobody
Devoted I shall be to thee
I shall love you eternally
To leave you, never will I
Swear by the constelations and the Sky
And God it was asembled by
And Earth for even He made it to be
And the Spirit that created He
I shall give you everything
For you I shall live
Verses I’ll write for thee
Of love crazy
And I swear by the stars
That are hiding, wandering
And from sight escaping
And the Night when your whipe your tears away
And the morn when you respire
Kisses of mine shall
Wake you tenderly
Forever, even when we cease to be.
