In my defense I've been tryin', In your mistakes you've been cryin', And as the rain falls upon the roof, I've been rinsing out all the proof. Well our ship was safe in the harbour, But we all know that's not what it's for. Where we went wrong I will never know, I guess you just had to go. Take a look around, see what we have done! Take a look around, now, see what we've become! That mornin' broke like any other, But then I heard from my brother. It came a tricklin', dripplin' down the line That everything was far from fine. So dress yourself in your fancy clothes. I hope they break your brittle bones. They'll only weigh you down when all is said and done, When you join our love on the run. Take a look around, see what you have done! Take a look around, now, see what you've become. So to conclude and bid farewell With the knelling of the bell The unforgiven, livin' far from me Well I hope that you can see what became of me I hope that you can see what became of me I hope that you can see what became of me!

I don't believe in Ghosts and dreams these crooked little smiles are tearing at their seams I throw it all away So, come the end of day I'll be on my way. I don't know how to settle in they put cinnamon in everythin' and I don't feel the same as anyone I see You had the best of me but now there's nothin' left of me. You won't know until I go, but I don't need you now So I will rise and take my leave, I won't know you anymore. Well you gave me your word, The likes I'd never heard to spill from your lips And now yours are on his How did it come to this? Well you won't know until I go, but I don't need you now So I will rise and take my leave, I won't know you anymore. It's better to have loved and lost well that is what they say but what do they know 'cos now it's time to go You won't know until I go, but I don't need you now So I will rise and take my leave, I won't know you anymore 'cos I don't need you now. And I will rise and take my leave, I won't know you anymore.

Dancing hall floor Stood by the door Dreaming alone Almost went home Then love falls, the band waltz, We’re right here And so it goes. And I don’t want to pretend, This will not end, I’m gonna walk before I run… ooooohhh It’s our fate, love dictates, We’ll dance until dawn. We wander through, The flowers effuse Swirling and spoken hands interwoven In sunlight, in shadow we know we can always dance again I don’t want to pretend, This will not end, I’m gonna walk before I run… ooooohhh It’s our fate, love dictates, We’ll dance until dawn.

A Pretty fair maid was in her garden When a stranger came a-riding by He came up to the gate and called her Said pretty fair maid would you be my bride She said I've a true love who's in the army And he's been gone for seven long years And if he's gone for seven years longer I'll still be waiting for him here Perhaps he's on some watercourse drowning Perhaps he's on some battlefield slain Perhaps he's to a fair girl married And you may never see him again Well if he's drown, I hope he's happy Or if he's on some battlefield slain And if he's to some fair girl married I'll love the girl that married him He took his hand out of his pocket And on his finger he wore a golden ring And when she saw that band a-shining A brand new song her heart did sing And then he threw his arms all around her Kisses gave her one, two, three Said I'm your true and loving soldier That's come back home to marry thee A Pretty fair maid was in her garden When a stranger came a-riding by He came up to the gate and called her Said pretty fair maid would you be my bride
