Take Me To That Place Far Away

Listening to the wind tonight
I hear a distant call
Like the voice of a longing lover
As she lay beside the leaves of the fall
Its expressions so gentle
As scarcely to be perceived
Its origins must be
A spring so deep
For its course to flow
And pour so true
Amidst the rustling
Of fallen verdure
This same current of sky
That once flowed through her delicate hair
Forever hence conscripted
To carry this melodious speech
Through time and space
By invisible streams
Through bluest air
And sweetest dreams
 
(Her Voice Calling)
“OH LOVER OH LOVER… I LONG FOR YOU
TO TAKE ME TO SOME FAR AWAY LAND
WHERE THE STARS OVERHEAD WILL COVER US
AS WE WALK HAND IN HAND”
 
“OH LOVER OH LOVER… TAKE ME NOW
TAKE ME TO THAT PLACE FAR AWAY
I CAN LIVE NO LONGER WITHOUT YOU
TAKE ME THERE THIS DAY”
 
 
It is a voice I knew well
Some long ago time
When I was young and in love
And she was the woman
That I made mine
As we danced
With the stars up above
While those leaves have been gone for some time now
Dried and blown away
Still the voice of my lover still lingers
And some nights I can hear her say
 
(Her Voice Calling)
“OH LOVER OH LOVER… I LONG FOR YOU
TO TAKE ME TO SOME FAR AWAY LAND
WHERE THE STARS OVERHEAD WILL COVER US
AS WE WALK HAND IN HAND”
 
“OH LOVER OH LOVER… TAKE ME NOW
TAKE ME TO THAT PLACE FAR AWAY
I CAN LIVE NO LONGER WITHOUT YOU
TAKE ME THERE THIS DAY”
 
 
(My Voice Calling)
“MY LOVER SWEET LOVER… I MISS YOU
MORE THAN THOSE LONG AGO YEARS
TIME MAY HAVE TAKEN ITS TOLL ON ME
BUT IT IS THE MEMORY OF YOUR LOVE
THAT BRINGS ME TO TEARS”
 
“MY LOVER SWEET LOVER… I LONG FOR YOU
TO TAKE ME TO SOME FAR AWAY LAND
WHERE THE STARS OVERHEAD WILL COVER US
AS WE WALK HAND IN HAND”
 
“MY LOVER SWEET LOVER… TAKE ME NOW
TAKE ME TO THAT PLACE FAR AWAY
I CAN LIVE NO LONGER WITHOUT YOU
TAKE ME THERE THIS DAY”
