Lady of the Isles

Grey is the mist of the day
Falling beneath her
Cold are the winds of the north
Bringing December
Lady of the Isles
Deep is your sorrow
Your lover is far away
Where is tomorrow?

CH (1)
In her fortress made of stone
No-one ever sees her
No-one ever hears her cry
She is so alone

He fights for the cause
In distant lands
Holding a shield and a sword
In his strong hands
True to the standard he bears
And to her memory
He lives another day
To love her only

CH (1) repeat

From kingdoms far and near
Suitors would woo her
Pledging all they possessed
They'd give to her
But she rejected them all
Denying them favour
They could not mend her heart
Nothing could save her

Lead break

Lost in a heathen place
He lay dying
Dreaming of her face
Seeing her crying
Still on the chapel floor
At break of day
Drinking the poisoned wine
Her pain drifts away

CH (2)
In her fortress made of stone
Her descendants hear her
Laughing with the one she loves
She is not alone
