It was cold, but she was lovely,
I was told, that she would never love me,
But still I hoped the love I felt it could be trusted.
So my case soon came to justice.
I found out they had taken my rights long ago
And what they gave in return wasn't nearly so.
But how could I've known never was I shown,
Little had I grown inside I was torn.
But her life's my concern
I long have ignored the fact that I love you
But I can't anymore - oh my lady.

Chorus
Oh my lady, gone for a year,
She told me maybe once she could stay here with me,
Oh she's alive in my heart, in my mind, in my soul,
There's a glow in my heart in my mind, in my soul.
There's a glow, there's a glow, there's a glow,
There's a glow - there's a glow.

Where my lady are you now.
A love so sacred still not allowed - life is hard.
Sometimes, life can be dreadfull
And this life I guess is more than a handfull.
In this war, we can not use weapons.
And in this war we can only learn lessons.
They had taken unripe fruits from the tree
And I learned my lesson when they gave them to me,
More could I see, clouds under me.
I saw wars upon land I saw wars under sea.

Chorus
Oh my lady, gone for a year,
She told me maybe once she could stay here with me,
Oh she's alive in my heart, in my mind, in my soul,
There's a light in my heart in my mind, in my soul.
There's a glow, there's a glow, there's a glow -
There's a glow.
