Lyrics

My Heart Again

Written By: Billie Reid

Baby how can I get through
To say the things I’m dying to
To let you know that I’m going through
The fires of hell to be with you again

Take my eyes I cannot see
Now everything looks dark to me
Only you can set me free
It’s in your arms I long to be again

Hold me darling, soothe my pain
Or else in this hell I must remain
Fever swords sharp lance my brain
I only need to be with you again

Take my heart Its dead and cold
Tear my breast as I get old
Its like my sorrows still untold
And still as if my souls been sold again

Instrumental...

Take my eyes I cannot see
Now everything looks dark to me
Only you can set me free
It’s in your arms I long to be again

‘The Sad Sweet End of Dreams’

Written By: Billie Reid

Like flowers on a strawberry tree
Like honey from the sweetest bee
I wish that she was here with me
My darling lover.

In all the world and anywhere
In all the towns and cities there
There is no-one whom can compare
With my fair delight

Half a heart beats within me
Half a heart still wanders free
With half a locket heart to be
My crystal link with her.

I dreamed I stroked her neck and hair
And kissed her face as we lay there
Knowing all the while though that love we’d share
I’d still wake in my cell without her.

It hurts to wake up all alone
It hurts to dream then find her gone
It hurts to reach for her in the dawn
In an empty bed without my honey

So as I in my cold cot lay, my heart, my warm dove flies away,
To sing my love to her each day,
And to feather her dreams in silk and satin.

And every night my hawk flies high
To guard her from the banshee cry
To let her safely dreaming lay
While in my dreaming my dragons eye’s
alert to safeguard her from harm.
