WickedLad Why we sing. (137* d) Lyr Add: AS I ROSE UP AT BREAK OF DAY 14 Jun 01


This is one song I collected a long while ago that i sing when I need to

AS I ROSE UP AT BREAK OF DAY

As I rose up at break of day
All from besides my true love
I heard a blackbird sing it's song
as beautiful as new love.
There's not a court in all the world,
has heard a sound so rich.
and nere a song that has been sung
that has such perfect pitch.
As I walked out this Autumn morn
just as the sun was rising,
and all the world with dew was hung,
and the trees like silver shining.
There's not a court in all the world,
has treasures fair as these,
and nere a diamond shone so bright,
as sunlight through the trees.
And later on this Autumn day,
I saw a tree fire burning,
it's leaves like flame of red and gold.
It set my heart a yearning.
And then I heard another song,
from deep within my heart,
awaiting just one touch of love,
before it gave a start.
After love I ask of life ,
just one simple thing,
pray never let me see the time,
that does not let me sing.
