Pain, pain go away
Please don’t come back another day.
Tears falling down my face
Oh how I wish for his warm embrace.
Wonder if this is suppose to be.
How can he stand there and break my heart
How did we allow us to grow so far apart?
All I am feeling is down and blue.Pain, pain go away
Bring me back to another day
Where he loved me
We thought we were meant to be.
I will not stop loving you
That much is true
But I will be stronger in time
And not feel so blue.
You will always be in my heart
even when we are apart.
One day I will have that warm embrace
And tears will stop flowing down my face.
Pain, pain go away
Leave me alone, please don’t stay.
It was a hard hard world they had left behind
Where the wheels did turn and their songs did rhyme
It was a hard hard road with its twisting bends
With its new dawn sights and its clucking hens
It’s a long long time with a dim dim past
Where the smoke did drift and the tales did last
It’s a hard hard story to unfold with its dreams all lost
With its children cold
It was a hard hard reason to tell them lies
To say that it was like heaven beneath the skies
When your hands were cold and your belly weak
All your journeys long and your spirit bleak
Oh it’s a long long journey from start to end
So cock an ear and let’s pretend my friend
There were rabbits free around each bend
Friends and neighbors for money yet to lend
The chavvies they played upon the downs with barefoot steps with laughing sounds
The old uns sat around the yog and told of dreams within the bog
The chaffinch trilled and the adder squirmed amongst the gorse each sunny morn
Where the vardo rested and the young men dreamed
And kissed the girls and made them scream
It was a hard life looking back amongst the broom and alder downs n back
Where the work was hard cutting peat and selling craft to mushes feet
The stories told and the lies were spun of how we all had such good fun
With blistered hands and swollen feet and little monies
But we had those dreams.
