Valediction
Wishbone Ash Lyrics


Breathing is a sin, they say,
Loneliness is the price to pay.
Sad for you, I go once more.
I'll dry my eyes on a distant shore.

No way of freezing your rising tide
No way of keeping you by my side.
Like a bird, I'll fly high,
Guarding over this love of mine.
A room of trust
A room of fears
A room of laughter with a few sweet tears.
There we lay that sunny dawn
Calm and helpless as it lingers on.

No way of keeping you by my side.
No way of keeping our love alive.
Like a bird, I'll fly high,
Guarding over this love of mine.

Many times we hurry by
Lose our problems in a knowing smile.
Many days were swept along
Left unnoticed as our love grew strong.

Believing each of us would always know
Believing one of us would never go.
Like a bird, I'll fly high
Watching over this love of mine.

Breathing is a sin, they say,
Loneliness is the price to pay.
Sad for you, I go once more.
I'll dry my eyes on a distant shore.

No way of freezing your rising tide
No way of keeping you by my side.
Like a bird, I'll fly high,
Guarding over this love of mine.

A room of trust
A room of fears
A room of laughter with a few sweet tears.
There we lay that sunny dawn
Calm and helpless as it lingers on.

No way of keeping you by my side.
No way of keeping our love alive.
Like a bird, I'll fly high,
Guarding over this love of mine.

Many times we hurry by
Lose our problems in a knowing smile.
Many days were swept along
Left unnoticed as our love grew strong.

Believing each of us would always know
Believing one of us would never go.
Like a bird, I'll fly high
Watching over this love of mine

We had this at my dad's funeral, it was one of his most favourite songs without ever realising the poignancy! I was brought up on this music, amongst others I consider this the most beautiful music ever produced. We was lucky enough to see wishbone ash with dad before he went and it was very special. And yes 4.27 was his favourite part too..

Marco Civiero

We all are sure your father was a beautiful person if he loved this musical god gift

That's a wonderful tribute, Laura. God bless.

love the ska/ reggae shift. who'd have ever seen that coming? such dynamic diversity.

surething baby

How would one describe this song?  The vocals and the guitar lines in the second half are so unique there are no words.

lying to the moon

I would say that Wishbone Ash are progressive bluesy folk rock

paulsmith maths

okay I checked them out and they seem to me to be electric Irish folk. Okay in parts, but no way the same genre as Wishbone Ash and nowhere as good either. Apart from some Irish football fans no one knows who they are. Best kept that way.

+surething baby It's folk-rock. Wishbone Ash did a few tracks like this - listen to 'Errors of My Ways' from their first album. And check out the Irish band Horslips - the 'founding fathers' of the genre.
