Woe-Begotten Songs

When she thinks of him

And the things he would do

She gets confused

About her repute
And now they’re apart

By a thousand miles

She’s losing the lineament

Of his smile
But she holds on strong

To how he would long

And she writes it all down

In her woe-begotten songs
When he thinks of her

And that kiss he stole

And how their lips would glow
Hot as a seraph’s live coal
And now they’re apart

By many years

Time won’t ameliorate
He holds on strong

And tries not to long

When listen too

Her woe-begotten songs
