Lady in Black
Uriah Heep Lyrics


She came to me one morning
One lonely Sunday morning
Her long hair flowing in the mid-winter wind
I know not how she found me
For in darkness I was walking
And destruction lay around me
From a fight I could not win
Ah, ah, ah

She asked me name my foe then
I said the need within some men
To fight and kill their brothers without thought of men or God
And I begged her give me horses
To trample down my enemies
So eager was my passion to devour this waste of life
Ah, ah, ah

But she would not think of battle that
Reduces men to animals
So easy to begin and yet impossible to end
For she the mother of all men
Had counciled me so wisely that
I feared to walk alone again
And asked if she would stay
Ah, ah, ah

Oh, lady, lend your hand, I cried
Oh, let me rest here at your side
Have faith and trust in me, she said and filled my heart with life
There is no strength in numbers
I've no such misconceptions
But when you need me be assured I won't be far away
Ah, ah, ah

Thus having spoke she turned away
And though I found no words to say
I stood and watched until I saw her black cloak disappear
My labor is no easier
But now I know I'm not alone
I find new heart each time I think upon that windy day
And if one day she comes to you
Drink deeply from her words so wise
Take courage from her as your prize and say hello for me
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

She came to me one morning,
One lonely Sunday morning,
Her long hair flowing in the mid-winter wind.
I know not how she found me, for in darkness I was walking,
And destruction lay around me from a fight I could not win.
Aaaaaaaaa, Aaaaaaaaa
She asked me name my foe then.
I said the need within some men
To fight and kill their brothers without thought of love or god.
And I begged her give me horses to trample down my enemies,
So eager was my passion to devour this waste of life.
Aaaaaaaaa, Aaaaaaaaa
But she would not think of battle that reduces men to animals,
So easy to begin and yet impossible to end.
For she the mother of all men did council me so wisely then
I feared to walk alone again and asked if she would stay.
Aaaaaaaaa, Aaaaaaaaa
"Oh lady lend your hand, " I cried,
"Oh let me rest here at your side."
"Have faith and trust in me, "
She said and filled my heart with life.
"There is no strength in numbers.
Have no such misconception.
But when you need me be assured I won't be far away."
Aaaaaaaaa, Aaaaaaaaa
Thus having spoke she turned away
And though I found no words to say
I stood and watched until I saw her black cloak disappear.
My labor is no easier, but now I know I'm not alone.
I find new heart each time I think upon that windy day.
And if one day she comes to you drink deeply from her words so wise.
Take courage from her as your prize and say hello for me.
Aaaaaaaaa, Aaaaaaaaa
Aaaaaaaaa, Aaaaaaaaa...

I am from the north of Argentina. I am 52 years old. The first time I heard this great song was around '77. My older brothers listened to it from a cassette that was given to them by a friend of theirs. We never knew who was the group that played this song, but we liked it a lot. The melody was always in my mind and in my memories. I searched for years on the internet but no luck. Just today I was able to listen to them by chance on a radio and I was able to discover who they were!!. beautiful song !!!. I started crying in the car while listening to it.

Есть ли выше признание искусству, чем признание здравого смысла - теперь и на веки!
Спасибо Вам Uriah Heep 70-х. !!!
Я моряк, в 1979 году в Новой Зеландии купил пластинку Look at Yourself - и теперь она со мной и даже берегу проигрыватель, чтоб можно было прослушать неповторимое произведение искусства! Спасибо Вам ребята!
