IF YOU SHOULD TAKE YOUR LOVE FROM ME

I N S P I R A T I O N

Life has ups and downs. It is uncanny, but the atmosphere has a bearing. Perhaps that is why the sad syndrome is so significant at particular times of year. I am not sure I could write a song like this at the moment. That probably pleases me. You can listen to the song on Soundcloud.


If You Should Take Your Love From Me

I watched the clouds with soulful eye.

They seemed to gather fast.

Lightning struck with almighty crack.

Saplings bent to the blast.

How sad and lonely I would be,

If you should take your love from me,

If you should take your love from me.


Rolling thunder long and hard,

With foundation shaking roar,

And biting wind with piercing might,

Chilling to the core.

How sad and lonely I would be,

If you should take your love from me,

If you should take your love from me.


Hard the track beneath the tread.

Slow the heart to mend.

Freezing rain cuts to the bone,

To break what will not bend.


I watched the clouds with soulful eye.

They seemed to gather fast.

Lightning struck with almighty crack.

Saplings bent to the blast.

How sad and lonely I would be,

If you should take your love from me,

If you should take your love from me.
