Every Story is a Love Story (Aida)

exibições 1.633

Every story, tale or memior
Every saga or romance
Whether true or fabricated
Whether planned or happen-stance

Whether sweeping through the ages
Casting centuries aside
Or a hurried, brief recital
Just a thirty minute ride

Whether bright or melancholy
Rough and ready, finely spun
Whether with a thousand players
Or a lonely cast of one

Every story new or ancient
Bagatale or work of art
All are tales of human failing
All are tales of love at heart

This is the story of a love that flourished in a time of hate
Of lovers no tyrany could separate
Love set into motion on the Nile's shore
Destiny ignited by an act of war

Egypt saw the mighty river
As its very heart and soul
Source of life for all her people
That only Egypt could control

Destruction of their southern neighbor justified
Nubia exploited left with little more than pride
