Ribbon Road lyrics


Let Me

Smooth away the tears, bless the funeral brow
Now I'm very near, let me show you how
Far away from Eden, beauties grow and bloom
I know how you'll be needing all my dreams for you

I recognise the feeling, the broken rocking chair
And very soon you'll believe in all the love and care

Rest your head with me, rely upon my shoulder
It's best to take your time to love and to hold her
Fancy flee away, washed in cooling rivers
I can feel the sway but there's more you can give her

Fretted breezes blowing, a rose's piercing thorn
Let it help you in knowing that roses don't stay that long

Like a boat that's sailing over stormy seas
I know all your failings, cast them onto me
Like a fountain flowing, pearls of milk and wine
Let it help you in knowing I'm gonna make you mine

Smooth away the tears, bless the funeral brow
Now I'm very near, let me show you how
