the rede (an it harm none)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ZQiDrD7L5k

I've been blessed with many lovers and I'd grant the same you
Though I suppose I'd skip a broken heart or two
I confess that I am troubled by that pious vocal few
When they cross the line and tell us what to do

Ah But life's too short for all this worry - I offer myself to you whole
Life's too long for lies to carry any more weight in this world

And it harm none, do what ye will
As the circle has bound us, bound we are still
Though the bottle be empty, may the cup remain filled
And it harm none, do what ye will

I will call the four directions, I will cast a circle here
I will put my feet upon the holy ground
In the shadow there reflected I will find and face my fear
And we all know there is fear a'plenty round

Ah But life's too short for all this worry - I offer myself to you whole
Life's too long for lies to carry any more weight in this world

An it harm none, do what ye will
As the circle has bound us, bound we are still
Though the bottle be empty, may the cup remain filled
And it harm none, do what ye will

Every act of love and pleasure is a prayer along the way
With everything between the living Earth and Sky
When it's all of life we treasure through the endless spinning days
In our actions you will know us by and by

Ah But life's too short for all this worry - I offer myself to you whole
Life's too long for lies to carry any more weight in this world

And it harm none, do what ye will
As the circle has bound us, bound we are still
Though the bottle be empty, may the cup remain filled
And it harm none, do what ye will
