lyrics

Light don’t leave me I need you now
For my true love waits across the town
I’m to meet her and win back her heart
Though she’ll wait no more while it gets dark

Time bid this hour stay –
Boot-heels give me speed on my way
Luna delay - for love!

I’m sorry. I’m covering old ground
For all this life allows still these hollow vows
Comfort the most dearly

Dusk.
She rolls her eyes and I close mine
Ere she lays me down
On a fragrant ground of burning leaves
I am deceived

Raise your devil to hold me down
The weight of heaven couldn’t hold me
Now I feel all is weightless above

I’m sorry. I’m covering old ground
For all this life allows still these hollow vows
Comfort the most dearly

It’s the fight of a life
To win time just to have and hold
Against a bitter tide
Of red and gold

I’m sorry I’m covering old ground
For all this life allows still these hollow vows
Comfort the most dearly
