Lark of the Clans... Celtic with a twist!

11.  She Wears No Ring - Notes and Lyrics

 

The songs of the meadow lark and the nightingale give expression to a heart broken by a callous lover in She Wears No Ring. It is a melody inspired by the larks that sang for me when I was in Wyoming. 

 

Lyrics 

The meadowlark sing, the meadowlark sings

Of beauty and joy and of love.

The soft summer breeze plays a sweet harmony

And carries her song to the sky, to the sky

And carries her song to the sky.

 

The nightingale sing, the nightingale sings

She sings to the stars and the moon.

Her song is a tale of a lover untrue

And a heart that is left all alone, alone

Of heart that is left all alone.

 

She wanders this valley by night and by day

She sings to the earth and the sky.

She sings of a love that has broken her heart,

For his caring was all but a lie, a lie

For his caring was all but a lie.

 

I wear no ring, I wear no ring.

I bear no other's name.

My blanket is shared with what dreams may come

And my heart it waits all alone, all alone.

And my heart it waits all alone.
