I cannot sing the words
Lyrics
I cannot sing the words
© 2011 Bruce Mills (SOCAN BMI)

In a field the flowers grow
Between the narrow stones they grow
The ones I love are buried there
And their names the stones remember

Their voices silent in the wind
That blows across the lonely field
And faces in the clouds they fade
Against the rising moon

Chorus
It's a sad, sad song
It's a sad, sad song
It's a sad, sad song
Oh I cannot sing the words

The peaceful river makes its way
Across the lonely field it flows
The seasons pass; the days and years
And only time remains

In my room a candle burns
But shadows hide in the darkness there
No ghost returns to pass the night
No one waiting at the door

Chorus
It's a sad, sad song
Where the flowers grow
It's a sad, sad song
Across the lonely field
It's a sad, sad song
Oh, the seasons pass
Oh I cannot sing the words

It's a sad, sad song
For the days and years
It's a sad, sad song
Only time remains
It's a sad, sad song
Across the lonely field
Oh I cannot sing the words

But, there's mercy in the rising sun
And there's mercy in the rain
There's mercy in the times to come
And there's mercy in the things that change

It's a sad, sad song
It's a sad, sad song
It's a sad, sad song
Oh, I cannot sing the words
