"Lady In Black"


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

For in darkness I was walking

And destruction lay around me

From a fight I could not win

Ahh Ahh Ahh, Ahh Ahh Ahh Ahh

She asked me name my foe then

I said the need within some men

To fight and kill their brothers

Without thought of love 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

Ahh Ahh Ahh, Ahh Ahh Ahh Ahh

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

Oh lady lend your hand outright

And let me rest here at your side

Have faith and trust in peace she said

And filled my heart with life

There's no strength in numbers

Have no such misconception

But when you need me

Be assured I won't be far away

Ahh Ahh Ahh, Ahh Ahh Ahh Ahh

Thus having spoke she turned away

And though I found no words to say

I stood and watched until I saw

Her black cloak 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

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 from me

Ahh Ahh Ahh, Ahh Ahh Ahh Ahh
