My Love

[Steeleye Span]

This was sung by Tim Hart and Maddy Prior on Steeleye Span's reunion album Sails of Silver.

Lyrics

Do you remember what we promised when we met, my love?
There would never be a reason for regret, my love
Bad news has come to town, bad news flies up and down
That another you have found to lie with you, my love

If the wind could whisper by that it's not true, my love
And the seas could rise and cry that it's not you, my love
If the hills could only say that you were on your way
Then happy I would stay and be with you, my love

Every night I light a light for your return, my love
But the morning light's a lesson to be learned, my love
That I who learned to trust have been betrayed and must
Forevermore be cursed for wanting you, my love

Remember what we promised when we met, my love?
There would never be a reason for regret, my love
But I who learned to trust have been betrayed and must
Forever more be cursed for wanting you, my love
