lyrics

There’s a line that separates what was from now, all I’d hoped for was at my feet.
All I’d hoped for hurts me and robs my sleep.
All I’d hoped for is gone, with the leaves.

From the roaring ocean, to the rolling hills, there was not a fairer maiden to be found.
She was taken for a wife by a young man in faith, one bright summer’s night long ago.

So she hoped he would be faithful and that he would be true.
Wishes, they say, seldom they come true.
So my love you want to leave me? So drink from this bottle now.
For if you won’t be with me, then I will be your only man.

There’s a line that separates what was from now.
All I’d hoped for was at my feet.
All I’d hoped for hurts me and robs my sleep.
All I’d hoped for is gone.
All I’ve dreamed of is gone.
Oh my love is all gone.
