Prelude 12 (Styx)

It was 'bout 15 years ago Just about this time The child we both were waiting for Soon opened his eyes First the cough and then the pain Showed within your face I felt the cold mist round your hand Like death was in its place Lord, Lord take my hand Take me down to the promised land Ever since you died my heart has died I'll be with you in the sunshine, sand I called the doctor to your side He knelt down by your bed He looked at you, he held your hand Then he shook his head The child you want won't give the love You both want to get As your wife come quickly now Cos she has not long to live He said-- Lord, Lord take my hand Take me down to the promised land Ever since you died my heart has died I'll be with you in the sunshine, sand Every day I go to kiss, the ground in which you lay Your golden hair has turned to dust Your smile has turned to clay The pain I felt for 15 years This life won't take a win And I will lie within your arms By the evening of this day Lord, Lord take my hand Take me down to the promised land Ever since you died my heart has died I'll be with you in the sunshine, sand
