Lyrics

THAT WAS MY VEIL

It starts at daylight
I see him
before my sad eyes
I hear him breathing.
Oh lover,
I need you to lead me.
I never
thought that you'd leave.

That was my veil.
That was my time.
Once held sacred,
but now lies.

No words can
heal my heart.
Inside I'm broken,
now it's done.
Was she a pretty girl?
Does she have pretty hair?
Was she soft-spoken?
Was there our love there?

That was my veil.
That was my time.
Once held sacred,
but now lies.
Give me back my veil.
Give back my time.
No more sacred,
You give me lies.
