THE TURN OF THE ROAD
(Les Barker)

Will you walk with me beyond the road's turning,
Where day takes the valley that leads into night?
Love, will you walk with me all through my journey,
Or only till the light?

Believe me, I need you. Don't think of leaving.
This evening, your love lights the way to the dawn.
Don't leave me here now. You've got me believing
Tomorrow I'll wake newborn.

If you love me as I love you,
Who cares how dark the night may appear?
If you love me as I love you,
I will know no fear.

The signs on the road are just there to mislead you.
At times I've misread them though I was so wise.
The turn of the road, my love, that's where I need you.
Tears always blind my eyes.

[Repeat first verse.]

Love, will you hold me through all my life's evenings?
Love, will you take the road right to the end?
I've never had someone I can believe in,
Forever, my lover, my friend.
