Gordon Lightfoot – I'm Not Sayin'/Ribbon Of Darkness lyrics
I'm not sayin' that I love you
I'm not sayin' that I'll care if you love me
I'm not sayin' that I'll care
I'm not sayin' I'll be there when you need me

I can't give my heart to you
Or tell you that I'll sing your name up to the sky
I can't lay the promise down
That I'll always be around when you need me

Now I may not be alone each time you see me
All along the street or in a small cafe
But still I won't deny you or mistreat you
Baby, if you let me have my way

I'm not sayin' I'll be sorry
For all the things that I might say that make you cry
I can't say I'll always do the things you want me to
I'm not sayin' I'll be true but I'll try

Ribbon of darkness over me
Since my true love walked out the door
Tears I never had before
Ribbon of darkness over me

Clouds are gatherin' over my head
That chill the day and hide the sun
That shroud the night when day is done
Ribbon of darkness over me

Rain is falling on the meadow
Where once my love and I did lie
Now she is gone from the meadow
My love, goodbye

Oh, how I wish your heart could see
How mine just aches and breaks all day
Come on home and take away
This ribbon of darkness over me

Come on home and take away
Ribbon of darkness over me
