aurora, aurora
morning star, mourning star.
aurora, aurora
morning star, mourning star.

my son is dead
my son is dead
and each dawn brings
a mist of tears
upon the field
where last he bled
the chill of grief
condenses here

aurora, aurora
morning star, mourning star
aurora, aurora
morning star, mourning star

the winter wakes
to frost that scars
the folded flower
of my heart
my boy, my boy
i weep for you
a film of dew
upon the grass

aurora, aurora
morning star, mourning star
aurora, aurora
morning star, mourning star

my son is dead, my son is dead
and each dawn brings a mist of tears
