lyrics

sing my darling
sing of our forbidden love
sweet as the wings of a starling
that flies in stormy skies up above
but sing of it in a hush

our liasons are kept tucked and secret
no one ever should know
but my cheeks warm so flushed and peaked
like the warm summer sun’s orange glow
like a rain swollen river does flow

And oh our way
is a twisted path clotted and strange
That keeps us out of the day
and the interloper’s casual gaze

leaves are falling
forming a damp mat on the ground
and though your father is calling
we pretend to not hear the sound
cause together you and i are bound

and so when he’s sleeping
i’ll creep to the side of his bed
and return to the sight of you weeping
when you’ve heard all the words that I said
your daddy’s no longer, he’s dead

chorus

goodbye my darling
you’re a thing i can no longer love
you were once so handsome and charming
now you’re a thing that only draws blood
let the starlings fly over this flood

G. Neal
