The Time Has Come
C. Moore and D. Lunny
The time has come to part my love, and I must go away. I'll leave you now my darling girl No longer can I stay My heart like yours is breaking Together we'll prove strong The road I take will show the world the suffering that goes on. The gentle clasp that holds my hand must loosen and let go Please help me through the door But instinct tells you no Our vow it is eternal And will bring you dreadful pain But if our demands aren't recognised, don't call me back again. How their sorrow touched us all in those final days When it was time she held the door, and touched his sallow face. The flame he lit while leaving, is still burning strong And by the light its plain to see the suffering still goes on The time has come to part my love, and I must go away. I'll leave you now my darling girl, no longer can I stay.
