Chorus – Elegy

And the one you love will never love you

And the one you love will never love you

And it hurts, and it hurts, and it hurts

And the one you love will never love you

Verse 1

Are you watching me as I sleep

I feel all burnt out inside

And in a heart that does not beat

Can there be love when the lover has died

Verse 2

Let the world sleep without you tonight

Lie still in your honeycomb cell

And as your mind falls away to the light

My love I bid you farewell

Verse 3

She watches grey oceans her eyes filled with tears

Taste the spray of a cold sea breeze

The pain and despair of a hundred years

Blown away in the winter leaves

Verse 4

Shamrock fields of ancestral tread

Where storm cloud skies cry to still mirrored lakes

Thundering mountain rivers rush by in her head

Follow me follow the path that I take

Verse 5

Cutting through the mists of time

Her heart drifts back to Irish earth

Escape through the bars of a Gaelic rhyme

Carry me back to the place of her birth

Lyrics by Godwin
