Darkness And Light Lyrics

There was a soldier, there was a lady,
there was a lover, who lived in town
There was a battle, in that far country,
to that dark land was that old soldier bound
He held his true love, he kissed her softly,
said Darlin' fear not, I'll come back around

From a rear window, the lover watching
watching as her tears fell to the ground
The nights grew cold, her heart grew lonely,
along the streets she would walk & she'd cry
Her heart was tender, her thoughts went yonder,
she'd gently kiss the ring she'd wear upon her finger

Distance makes the heart grow fonder
But passion makes the fire bright
Loneliness & confusion
Darkness & light

One night while dreamin', she saw her true love,
by the old rock he sat a-weepin'
His eyes were shinin', his head turned skyward,
asking God above, how could this be?
She jumped up from her bed, her heart was pounding
she went out to calm herself in the cool night air
She started roamin', by the edge of town,
while the lover watched her go all alone

She soon grew weary, her body tired,
by an old rock wall she settled down
Her lover approaching, approaching gently,
lonely love was his favorite hunting ground

Distance makes the heart grow fonder
But passion makes the fire bright
Loneliness & confusion
Darkness & light

The very next morning, the lady rising,
she felt confusion, like never before
She awoke in her own bed with a tender feeling thought
she heard the sound of her sweet soldier aproachin
A knock came upon the door, she jumped up running,
only to see a strange soldier with medals a-shinin?
He said Sad lady sad news I bring you
Your soldier died last night while the bullets were
flyin

No, no, no, this can't be for just last evening,
my soldier sang to me love's true song.
Wracked with confusion, she fell a-weepin',
while the lover, from his window watched all along?

Distance makes the heart grow fonder
But passion makes the fire bright
Loneliness & confusion
Darkness & light
