lyrics

As time draws near my dearest dear
When you and I must part
How little you know of the grief and woe
In my poor aching heart
Tis' but I suffer for your sake
Believe me dear it's true
I wish that you were staying here
Or I was going with you

I wish my breast were made of glass
Wherein you might behold
Upon my heart your name lay wrote
In letters made of gold
In letters made of gold my love
Believe me when I say
You are the one that I’ll adore
Until my dying day

The blackest crow that ever flew
Would surely turn to white
If ever I prove false to you
Bright day would turn to night
Bright day would turn to night my love
The elements would mourn
If ever I prove false to you
The sea would rage and burn
