lyrics

You don’t know what it is you’ve got ‘till it’s gone
As beauty only trembles in the hand
You never know what shines, will it shine for how long?
And forgotten lies the love that’s all around

Carry these words and tell my love
I’ve trusted her all along

Blessed and free sings the swallows’ song
But it leaves in the autumn for the sun
If I could leave now and follow her at all
I’d catch the very first wind and be gone

Carry these words and tell my love
I’ve trusted her all along
Carry these words and tell my love
If the heart never lies it ain’t wrong

Too many miles and too many days
Absence grows affection or forgets
Love shows its colours in too many ways
And hindsight bares a wisdom from regrets

Carry these words and tell my love
I’ve trusted her love all along
Carry these words and tell my love
If the heart never lies it ain’t wrong
