about

The words to this song were taken from the poem "The Lover Mourns For His Love", by William Butler Yeats. They were arranged into lyrics, and composed musically by Alex Barnett and Leo & Cygnus.

lyrics

Pale brow, still hands and dim hair.
I had a beautiful friend
That dreamed that the old despair
Would end in love in the end,
I had a beautiful friend.

She looked in my heart one day
And saw that your image was there.
She has gone weeping away,
I had a beautiful friend
But in the end

The lover mourns the loss of his love,
The lover mourns his loss.

I dreamed that one had died
In a strange place,
Near no accustomed hand.

They nailed the boards above my face
The peasants of my land,
The peasants of my land.

And I left her to the stars above,
Until I carve these words,
She was more beautiful than my first love.
Now, I lie under boards.

The lover mourns the loss of his love,
The lover mourns his loss.
