In the Shadow Of The Pines

We wandered in the shadow of the pines my love and I
As the wind was blowing freshly from the sea
But a sudden fitful darkness stole across the summer sky
And a shadow came between my love and me
Some hasty words were spoken and then almost unawares
Hasty answeres to unthinking anger led
And our heart sick bitter longing and our weeping and our prayers
Ne’re can make those false and cruel words unsaid

Come back to me sweetheart and love me as before
Come back, back to me sweetheart and leave me never more
In lifes dull pathway the sun no longer shines
Come love and meet me in the showdow of the pines

You took the ring I gave you nor cast a glare at me
As you held the jewel’d trinket in your hand
And then you turned and tossed it in the waters of the sea
While the waves were splashing idly on the sand
You went your way unheeding the tears I could not hide
You went your way and not a word was said
But my stubborn heart was breaking underneath its mask of pride
And the pine trees sobbed in pitty o-re head.

I wake from the bitter dreaming but to call aloud your name
I sleep again to dream of you once more
And my stubborn pride has left me I admit I was to blame
Forgive me dear and love me as before
For the future is o’er shadowed with the darkness of despair
In the sky of life love’s sun no longer shines
And I’d give the whole world gladly once again to meet you there
Reunited in the shadow of the pines
