Lady in Black Songtext
von Blackmore’s Night

Lady in Black Songtext

She came to me one morning
One lonely Sunday morning
Her long hair flowing in the midwinter wind

I know not how she found me
When in darkness I was walking
Destruction lay around me from the fight I could not win

Ah haha haha haha
Ah haha haha
Ah haha haha haha
Ah haha haha

She asked me name my foe then
I said the need within some men
To fight and kill their brothers without thought of man or God

And I begged her give me horses
To trample down my enemies
So eager was my passion to devour this waste of life


Ah haha haha haha
Ah haha haha
Ah haha haha haha
Ah haha haha

But she wouldn't think of battle that
Reduces men to animals
So easy to begin and yet impossible to end

For she's the mother of all men
Who counselled me so wisely then
I feared to walk alone again and asked if she would stay

Ah haha haha haha
Ah haha haha
Ah haha haha haha
Ah haha haha

Oh, lady, lend your hand outright
And let me rest here at your side
"Have faith and trust in me" she said, and filled my heart with life

"There is no strength in numbers
I know of such misconceptions
But when you need me be assured, I won't be far away"


Ah haha haha haha
Ah haha haha
Ah haha haha haha
Ah haha haha

Thus, having spoke, she turned away
And though I found no words to say
I stood and watched until I saw her black coat disappear

My labour is no easier
But now I know I'm not alone
I'll find new heart each time I think upon that windy day

Ah haha haha haha
Ah haha haha
Ah haha haha haha
Ah haha haha

She came to me one morning
One lonely Sunday morning
Her long hair flowing in the midwinter wind

And if one day she comes to you
Drink deeply from her words so wise
Take courage from her as your prize and say "Hello" for me

"I stood and watched until I saw her black coat disappear"
It's black "Cloak".
