Dark Now My Sky - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

Don't ask me how i know
But this dark sky will soon be blue
Don't ask, no don't ask
Just watch as the grey mists of winter fall
Like so many drops of dew
Feel the ice melt to warm tears in my eyes
Uner the light of a tin sun
Do not ask me how i know
The effect of light on unseeing eyes
How should i know?
How could i know?
Dark now my sky
The sea of peace has left my shore
No birds cry
The silent spring will overflow
Oh you'll never know
I love you so
You'll always be
A part of me

Dark now my eyes
The sea of peace has met the sky
No birds sing
And like the spring life whispers by
Oh you'll never know
I love you so
You'll always be
A part of me

Dark now my sky
The winds of time have swept my shore
No birds fly
The trees that fall will rise no more
Oh you'll never know
I love you so
You'll always be
A part of me

[barclay james harvest, ?ardmore & beechwood/emi]
