They Say You Are Gone

In the spring of our youth we walked hand in hand
Through the fields with the flowers in bloom.
And the love in our hearts was the love of the land
But my spirit, you vanished too soon.

They say you are gone, that you'll never return
And that you never loved me at all.
But I know the truth, that your heart is still mine
And I'm holding your place in my hall.

I searched all the worlds when you were o'er long
Walked the beaches for some sign of you
All these tears that I cry are because you are gone
And my husband that's all I can do.

They say you are gone, that you'll never return
And that you never loved me at all.
But I know the truth, that your heart is still mine
And I'm holding your place in my hall.

Your daughter is growing and you'll never know
How I see you behind her dark eyes.
That such a treasure our marriage could sow
Is the proof that our love never dies.

They say you are gone, that you'll never return
And that you never loved me at all.
But I know the truth, that your heart is still mine
And I'm holding your place in my hall.

Other lovers have come to warm my bed
And I know that you understand.
Though they comfort my body I will never wed
For my heart is still held in your hand.

They say you are gone, that you'll never return
And that you never loved me at all.
But I know the truth, that your heart is still mine
And I'm holding your place in my hall.

So my husband, my heartsong, I'll wait for you
Though I know you may never return.
To that memory of springtime I will hold true
In the darkness of night I still yearn.

They say you are gone, that you'll never return
And that you never loved me at all.
But I know the truth, that your heart is still mine
And I'm holding your place in my hall.
