The dawn is just a breakin',
across this ol' hilly land.
Me heart is sorely achin',
o'er the lass who'd held me hand.

As I glanced 'cross the gloamin',
the sunrise' castin' shadows.
I'd hoped to see her roamin',
toward that familiar meadow.

'Twas there that we shared our love,
one so soft and sweet and true.
'Twas there the clouds swirled above,
in a sky so ever blue.

Alas, one October mornin',
when the skies had turned to grey,
and the rain began a pourin',
the lass upped and walked away.


So each morn I face the east,
and I play these bloody pipes.
This poor lad's plea will ne'er cease,
'til his lass comes home for keeps!

Thanks. i wanted to create a vision of a lad wakin up every morn with the sunrise, playin a melancholy lament on his bagpipes, the sound driftin 'cross the valley and echoin off the hills, in search of his lost love. if you haven't seen and heard the video, check it out!
