Silver Wings - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

Did we take away the daylight from our life?
Dreams are over, faded with the night
We've been here so long, didn't we see the way
Love grown cold as ice melted with the rain
After all these years
Can't believe it's true
Is it really over
After all that we've been through?
I need you here
To take away the pain
I just want to be with you again

Did you see the way
We broke the things we made
Gone forever, never be the same
Torn away on "silver wings"
Love like lightning ended in the rain
After all this time
You're still the only one
Can't be over, all we've said and done

I need you back
To take away the pain
I just want to be with you again

I need you back
To take away the pain
I just want to be with you again
