Dark Now My Sky

Album: Barclay James Harvest (1970)
  • Don't ask me how I know
    But this dark sky will soon be blue
    Don't ask, no don't ask
    Just watch as the grey mists of winter fall
    Like so many drops of dew
    Feel the ice melt to warm tears in my eyes
    Uner the light of a tin sun
    Do not ask me how I know
    The effect of light on unseeing eyes
    How should I know?
    How could I know?
    Dark now my sky
    The sea of peace has left my shore
    No birds sing
    The silent spring will overflow
    Oh you'll never know
    I love you so
    You'll always be
    A part of me

    Dark now my eyes
    The sea of peace has met the sky
    No birds sing
    And like the Spring life whispers by
    Oh you'll never know
    I love you so
    You'll always be
    A part of me

    Dark now my sky
    The winds of time have swept my shore
    No birds fly
    The trees that fall will rise no more
    Oh you'll never know
    I love you so
    You'll always be
    A part of me Writer/s: JOHN LEES, LES HOLROYD, MELVYN PRITCHARD, STUART J WOLSTENHOLME
