    The fox had done running
    And the beast is at bay
    He'd run them in circles
    By the end of the day

    They chased him through bramble
    They chased him through the fields
    They could chase him forever
    But the fox would not yield

    And some saw her shadow
    On the crest of a hill
    And the hounds were distracted
    Away from the kill

    One day we'll reach a great ocean
    At the end of a pale afternoon
    And we lay down our heads just like we were sleeping
    Controlled by the drag of the moon

    We ran through the forests
    And we ran through the streams
    We ran through the heather
    Though we ran in our dreams

    And you were my lover
    And I was your beau
    We ran like the river
    What else did we know?

    One day we'll reach a great ocean
    At the end of a pale afternoon

    And the dogs are all worn out
    And the horses all lame
    Oh the hunters they're hunted
    At the end of the game

    Our love was a river
    A wild mountain stream
    In a tumbling fury
    On the edge of a dream

    And they chased us through the brambles
    And they chased us through the fields
    They'd chased us forever
    But the heart would not yield

    When the fox has done running
    At the end of the day
    I'm ready to answer
    I'm ready to pay

    And this river's done running
    And my time will come soon
    Carried to the great ocean
    By the drag of the moon
