lyrics

THE LOVE SHE GAVE TO ME

Out of a western city
The August light in her eyes
She came down on a wailing wind
And would not let me lie.
She came down from a mountain
And would not let me be
Till I returned her heart to her
With the love she gave to me.

Out on the midnight water
The everlasting at hand
She walked out in the moonlight clear
I saw her on the sand.
In her hands were the words she wrote
And scattered by the sea
Were all the promises I made
For the love she gave to me.

But it was oh, so long ago
That I almost cannot remember
And it was oh, so far away
That I thought I had learned to forget.

Now as I walk on this hillside
In the place where soon I will lie
Though I am older than time can tell
I steal a young man's eye
And walk again with her hand in mine
By the mountains o'er the sea
And seal the promises I made
For the love she gave to me.
