Heyo! SONGLYRICS just got interactive. Highlight. Review: RIFF-it. RIFF-it good.
You soldiers all that now are parted,
From your true loves many a mile.
That like me lie heavy hearted,
Rest with me and talk awhile.
Of the brightness sun and summer,
When we two, our love did prove
That some cheer I may discover,
Though I live not wear I love
In my sleep though yet when waking,
Can I take a moments rest.
But beware the fates for making,
Love to stand so stern a test.
Yet the token we divided,
Through dark or day, I’ll never remove.
Sustains my heart though comrades chided,
While I live not where I love.
The birds shall leave their airy region,
And fishes in the air shall fly.
The world shall be of one religion,
All living things shall cease to die.
The sea shall dry and stars extinguish,
Before that I disloyal prove.
Or for a moment’s hope I relinquish,
Though I live not where I love.
So though upon a darkened field,
Of a far country now I lie.
And though the march seems ever onward,
Yet one day for peace I’ll cry.
For Joy as homeward, I’ll be flying,
To her warm arms my pain to soothe.
And joined in love with joy loud crying,
The will I live where I love.
