Well it's true what they say Lightning really does turn the night into day Only for a while And it's true what they say Loving in your life can only get in the way Even for a while Tell me when will you be in my arms again Tell me when will you be in my arms again Tell me when will you be in my arms again Tell me when will you be in my arms again Well it's true what they say Loving in your life can only get in the way Even for a while And it's true what they say Lightning really does turn the night into day Only for a while Tell me when will you be in my arms again Tell me when will you be in my arms again Tell me when will you be in my arms again Tell me when will you be in my arms again

Well it's hard to be alone! She said to me And it's harder still for me to see you up and walking Down along this old and dusty road Down along this old grey road So I turn to her and say this cannot be How can you stand so close and hear me talking? Of all the little lies you said to me Of all the little cruelties which led me walking Homeward underneath the yew tree where my sweetheart lies It's there where you'll find me in the dawning of the day When the sun falls from the sky My sweetheart and I So I keep my head down and carry on All I can see is the rain falling Down onto the road I walked along Down onto the road I walked along And out of the mist I see her form I have never seen her look so silent On the road it's hard to be alone On the road it's hard to keep yourself from walking Homeward underneath the yew tree where my sweetheart lies It's there where you'll find me in the dawning of the day When the sun falls from the sky My sweetheart and I My sweetheart and I My sweetheart and I...

I knew the cold wind here was blowing Through the corners of your eyes I saw a distant sense of loathing More pronounced than real lies I touched your hand to see it moving Out of reach from my side And thought it strange to hear you crooning But you didn't want me ...to see you with your face so low on the surface water now And then I'd hear you call my name just to tell me something clear I never meant to get so high right now I never meant to get so high right now On you A car pulled over rain was falling From above and below I heard the damned well near calling But it was more because of you... ...and all the things you made me do in the act of only trying - - to please you I knew I'd never make it back I'd never be the same I only meant to get so high right now I never meant to get so high right now With you I knew the cold wind here was blowing

I've never known a soul to walk I've never known the trees to talk I've never known no one like you I'd be with you if you asked me to You walked, with me or without me You walked, with me, with me You walked, with me or without me Once you walked alone Once I saw you leave me blind Once I saw you changed my mind Once I saw you proudly lead Once I could barely lag behind You walked, with me or without me You walked, with me, with me You walked, with me or without me Once you walked alone Once I nearly trusted you Twice I nearly felt a fool Thrice you nearly let me down Four times I longed you to stand your ground You walked, with me or without me You walked, with me, with me You walked, with me or without me Once you walked alone

Well I walk the hillsides and see them shrink I've flown through valleys fair I've even waded the darkest water to see your golden hair To see your golden hair Well I walk the deserts of burning sands I've gazed without a care At the stars which shine so brightly down above your golden hair Above your golden hair Oh but my darling I can't wait that long Oh but my darling I can't wait that long It's not right, it's not fair How can I be waiting here when you're not waiting there? If you're not waiting there? Well I walked along the highway With an empty bottle of beer And I've thrown it straight at the moon and I've cursed your golden hair I've cursed your golden hair Well I've seen the ghosts of ages Throw their hands up in despair And all because of a simple quest for that girl with golden hair That girl with golden hair Oh but my darling I can't wait that long Oh but my darling I can't wait that long It's not right, it's not fair How can I be waiting here if you're not waiting there? If you're not waiting there? If you're not waiting there?
