  • On a lonely walk this morning
    A light mist in the air
    Dark clouds laughing at me in silence
    Casting shadows through my hair

    In the distance I saw a woman
    Dressed in black with eyes of grey
    She wore her pain like a shackled spirit
    Eternal life was her debt to pay

    The lady wore black
    It's the sign of the prisoners lives
    The lady wore black
    See the years through the tears in her eyes
    The lady wore black
    Her mystic power calls to me
    The lady wore black
    Her love can set me free

    The wind song whispered a warning
    Telling me to beware
    Of the quiet shadowed woman
    And of the sadness I would share

    We sat together for sometime together in silence
    Never speaking in words
    Of all her thoughts she spoke with her eyes
    And I listened remembering all I heard

    The lady wore black
    It's the sign of the prisoners lives
    The lady wore black
    See the years through the tears in her eyes
    The lady wore black
    Her mystic power calls to me
    The lady wore black
    Her love can set me free

    The words she spoke were of forgotten lives
    And of all knowledge gained
    Mem'ries I had and didn't know why
    With a smile she explained
    I should have listened to the wind's cold warning
    And walked the other way
    I touched her soul and now I bear her sentence
    But for her love I'll gladly pay

    The lady wore black
    It's the sign of the prisoners lives
    The lady wore black
    See the years through the tears in her eyes
    The lady wore black
    Her mystic power calls to me
    The lady wore black
    Her love can set me free
