Labour of Love
Dead Can Dance Lyrics


Forced by necessity
I arrive at your door
These gifts I bring to you
For your benefit alone

In anticipation
Of things to come
A labour
A labour of love
The sacrifice is made
To ensure our prosperity
A small price to pay
For the knowledge that we now own

In anticipation
Of things to come
A labour
A labour of love

So until we meet again
At some fixed point in time
Have faith in our ability
To realise the potential of our dreams

In anticipation
Of things to come
A labour
A labour of love

Origin of my dreams
Destiny so it seems
Origin of my dreams
Destiny so it seems

I have been a long time lover of DCD, but I don't know how I never heard this song until the past 2 yrs. Probably where I live. Backwards.

A forgotten gem of time. <3

Forced by necessity I arrive at your door
These gifts I bring to you for your benefit alone
In anticipation of things to come

A labour a labour of love


The sacrifice is made to ensure our prosperity
A small price to pay for the knowledge that we now own
In anticipation of things to come
A labour a labour of love

So until we meet again at some fixed point in time
Have faith in our ability to realise the potential of our dreams
In anticipation of things to come

A labour a labour of love


Origin of my dreams
Destiny so it seems
Origin of my dreams
Destiny so it seems
