lyrics

The fever shadow finally passed us over like a troubled rain
She still asks for you everyday
Don't ask me questions
Take your silent glances with you when you go

Weren't you just sleeping 'neath the oak tree?
Weren't you just bathing 'neath the moon?
I swear this day feel just like night with you gone
Now I lay these stones for you
One by one, just for you

Darlin' I'm still true
Darlin' I'm still true

I see your face in every dancing shadow on my windowsill
She still asks for you everyday
Grey veil blowing outside the window of my misty mind

Weren't we just kissing in the stable?
Peeling yellow from your cheek
I swear this day feels just like night with you gone
Now I lay these stones for you
One by one, just for you

Darlin' I'm still true
Darlin' I'm still true

Do you just watch me here
in my grey haven of memory?
Time is a mocking me
Am I standing or am I falling?
Time is a mocking me
Am I standing or am I falling?

Weren't you just crying when I told you
I'd always be right by your side?
White lace was streaming down your back
Down your back

Now I lay these stones for you, one by one
Now I lay these stones for you, one by one
Now I lay these stones for you, one by one

Darlin' I'm still true
Darlin' I'm still true
Darlin' I'm still true
