Crystal Gayle - Ribbon Of Darkness Lyrics

Ribbon of darkness over me
Since my true love walked out the door
Tears I never had before
Ribbon of darkness over me

Clouds are gathering over my head
They chill the day and hide the sun
And shroud the night when day is done
Ribbon of darkness over me

Rain is falling on the meadow
Where once my love and I did lie
Now she is gone from the meadow
My love goodbye

Ribbon of darkness over me
Where once the world was young as spring
Where flowers did bloom and birds would sing
Ribbon of darkness over me

In this cold room lying
Don't want to see no one but you
Oh, I wish I could be dying
To forget you

How I wish your old heart could see
How mine just takes and breaks all day
Come on back and take away
Ribbon of darkness over me
Come on back and take away
Ribbon of darkness over me
